6:42 and wide awake

So for several days now, all the weather channels have been predicting snow. Lots of snow. Up to 12 inches of snow. When I woke up at 2am this morning, I glanced out the window and saw...well...not snow. Disappointed but resigned to yet another snowless but icy winter, I settled back into bed with the knowledge that I had to be up in 3.5 hours to get ready for another day of work. I woke up at 5:30 and as I got up to start my day, I glanced out the window yet again and saw...well...six inches of snow and still coming!

Within five minutes of it getting light this morning, I glanced out at our back porch and it was covered with birds waiting for bird seed! Either we've trained them or they've trained us because we did put out food for them right away.

Mara Jade - stomach deep in trouble.

Our back door - apparently the snow gods were spitting list night.

I was playing with our fun snow setting on our camera. I love my camera. One of the best buys I've made in a long time.

One Year Ago Today

On this day, one year ago, we completely changed our lives. We drove away from jobs and home and loved ones to a new adventure of the very m...
