We had our first real snowfall of the season here in Michigan this past week and I must admit that seeing the world outside my windows covered in a blanket of fresh-fallen snow brings me joy; Maddy seems equally pleased with it and happily bounded through it like a snow bunny (you can watch a bit of that here). It truly is beautiful and we’re expecting more today and overnight to accumulate. What better to put you in the holiday mood than snowfall? I made a point to watch White Christmas over the weekend too. With a beautiful, snowy landscape in mind…feast your eyes on these: Alaska, Iceland, Norway. After all that ice and snow, maybe you need a nice crackling fire to warm you up? If you can’t enjoy a real one, here’s a virtual one for fun.
