We are now knee deep (especially if there's a lot of snow where you live - get it? get it?) in what is known around here as the evilest of all seasons: winter. I will say I have genuinely attempted to improve my bad attitude about winter over the last couple of years, especially in January and February which are my least favorite months. And one way I've done this is to seek out inspiring images of wintertime, as a reminder that even though it's going to be a long time before I step outside without having to bury myself beneath a million layers, winter possesses a quality that, uncomfortable or otherwise, is undeniably beautiful. There was actually a time, when I was living in Colorado, that I appreciated winter on many levels. But that was in a place where, very unlike where I live now, these images are actually representative of what I saw when looking out the window.
All of this said, you guys have been hearing me complain about winter since I started this blog five years ago, so I'll shut up about why it makes me silently cry for a good two months at a time and just let you look at these pretty pictures. If you stare at them long enough, winter suddenly doesn't seem quite so bad.
P.S. Thank you all so much for your sweet comments here and on Instagram welcoming baby Emmett! It's been a pretty wonderful first few days getting to know each other and transitioning to a family of four, sleep deprivation and all. We're grateful and happy.
