Texas Takes a Snow Day
A little holiday magic happened here last night. Jack Frost decided to take a little trip to South Texas this past Thursday, resulting in a temporary yet sensational snowfall for most of the state. What started as a cozy night in for Travis and I, quickly turned into a child-like night under the snow flurries. We spent most of the evening attempting to build a snowman, and sipping hot chocolate as all the neighbors, their children, and dogs alike soaked in this frosty early Christmas present.
The next morning we awoke to a blanket of winter white (at 6:00 am non the less, because when winter shows up for the first time in over 15 years, you’re a morning person.) Of course I insisted we get up and take pictures at first light, and Travis, being the patient and accommodating blogger hubby that he is, obliged.
As cliche as it may sound to some, those who are not used to a white Christmas can understand, that experiencing an unexpected winter wonderland during the holidays, (when it was just 80 degrees the night before,) can truly remind you of the magic that so many of us forget about or leave behind as we grow older. I watched my husband’s eyes light up when he first say the blanket of snow in our yard. I saw neighbors laugh and visit with one another and make heartwarming memories with their families that will last many years to come. I can tell you, that in that moment, I felt like a child again. All those adult to-do lists and daily stresses melted away. It was a splendid and beautiful little holiday surprise, so I thought it deserved a little mentioned here on the blog today.
I hope you are having a fantastic and memory-filled holiday season so far. Thanks for stopping by the blog today.
