snow kinda mood...

something you may not know about me......
i was born in california.
my family moved to minneapolis when i was very young,
and then onto a suburb of chicago, where i did most of my growing up. picture the "wonder years", remember that t.v. show with fred savage? i loved that show.
both of my parents and all four grandparents are from north dakota.
my first two years of college were spent in minnesota.
hubby, he's from the "u.p" of michigan...that means upper peninsula.
i have some northern blood in me.
and i LOVE snow.
and i LOVE winter recreation.
cross-country skiing, ice-fishing, skating, sledding, snow-mobiling, you name it.
if it involves being out in the snow, i love it.

please excuse me for changing up all my side bar pictures.
i'm just in that snow kinda mood.........
even though here in tennessee, today on thanksgiving, it was 70 degrees!
tomorrow i will be pulling out my christmas treasures and perhaps even play some christmas music (only when hubby is golfing...he says it's way too early for such music).
me...well, i'm dreaming of a white tennessee christmas.

Good morning dearest Erin! WHAT? YOU SPENT TIME HERE IN MINNESOTA? I live in MINNEAPOLIS and went to the U of M for my bachelor's in French and to Hamline University and Bethel University for my teaching licenses and Masters!!!!! WOOWOOWWWWW! Hey, we have snow and it is charming as all get out. It is getting to be that trademark CHILLER of a winter, but I love it. And guess where I was born? CALIFORNIA! Los Angeles born and raised. Then I live in Boston Massachusetts and got my first taste of snow. Oh, have a lovely day dearest! Anita

Love your snowy pictures. I'm going to try and look at snow from it's pretty side this winter so I don't mind it so much. It may not be so bad this year because I won't be going to class and have to trudge across campus several times a week. I like snow from the inside, but I'm not an outside winter person. Took up skiing back in my late 40's and loved it, but I was never very good at it and decided to hang it up before I broke something. The few years I went skiing, I did absolutely love winter.

Beautiful photography Erin! Your pictures are dreamy! I always love the first snowfall and then a snowstorm that keeps us cozy inside for a day. After that...too much work! ...and I long for spring again!
Have fun decorating and getting in the spirit of the season! :)

Great photos, but I don't want the snow. I could go all Winter without snow or ice, and keep the temps above freezing. :D
Local station started playing Christmas music about a week ago.
Have a great weekend.

Just beautiful Erin.

I'll wish for you a white Christmas. We got one a few years back. When you don't often have snow it is magical and appreciated.

Okay, let me try that again. I think I'll just come on over here for a visit when I want my snow fix. I can also look outside at the mountains, there is already snow on them. I love your new header, btw. So pretty. You know I'm really NOT a stalker, right? :-)
