A Wonderful Winter

It’s March 25 and it’s snowing as I am typing this. Does it normally snow this late in March? Who really knows, but it has been quite the snowy Winter here. I am a little tired of snow, but do appreciate the quiet beauty it brings when freshly fallen. It seems like when it snows life slows down, and I think it’s nice to take in the stillness. Below is a picture of one of the first snow storms of the year. On this night, I went walking with one of my roommates and it was so beautiful. The snow literally sparkled. It was probably one of the prettiest snow falls I’ve seen.

My house with freshly fallen snow. I love the look of houses with freshly fallen snow at night when the lights on inside the house make the windows look golden.

This Winter has been a fun one. Per usual, I have not done the best job taking pictures (in my defense, the picture quality on my phone was terrible, but I just got an iPhone so hopefully I will take more pictures). Some fun memories include attending two Wizards NBA games, watching lots of Winter Olympic games, walking around snowy DC at night taking in all the pretty buildings and monuments, a quick trip to Deep Creek, my sister’s birthday, lots of fireplace fires, trying new restaurants in the area, and lots of frozen yogurt (those who know me best know I love frozen yogurt all year long)! Below are some pictures of our quick trip to Deep Creek courtesy of Hunter’s iPhone.

Snow tubing!
I like this picture because it shows how bright the sun was that day. It was also surprisingly warm for a February day, which made it really nice to be outside.

This picture may not seem spectacular to the casual observer until you realize that we're standing in the middle of Deep Creak Lake. It was frozen enough we could walk out into the middle, and even played a friendly game of ladder ball.

While I have without a doubt enjoyed this Winter, I am very much looking forward to warmer weather which brings with it BBQ’s, trips to the beach, concerts, tennis, evening summer walks and late night conversations on the back deck, and so much more. And then my favorite season…Fall!
