Loveland Snowboarding

In January, husband went snowboarding in Loveland. He went by himself because I’m not a snowboarder or a skiier. I have been meaning to share photos he took of this little trip. It’s all so breathtaking.

First Snow 2013

KYSNOW1004130019_800It snowed this morning.  My daughter was anxious to go out and play before heading off to school.  It was cold and windy with snow blowing everywhere, but it was quite beautiful.

Long Awaited Snow & Tree Lights

snow12192012_0072_600It finally snowed this month.  We were supposed to get blizzard-like snow but instead, we got lots of wind and a nice dusting of flaky snow.  It’s pretty and peaceful (as always) but extremely cold.  The temperature outside is 17.8°F.

I am pretty happy this morning.  I’ve got all my work done and I can blog freely with no other stress!  It feels amazing!  Of course, this never lasts so I’m going to make the best of it before I have to get busy again.

The Christmas tree went up a week ago.  I have such a hard time decorating it.  It could be that I just don’t have enough ornaments but it always looks as though there’s something missing.
