Snow and Warmth

Snow laying across the valley. Allier, France.

For the first time in years, we watched snow falling while feeling warm.

The snow arrived a few days ago. A welcome flurry of flakes just in time before our guests had to head home. When our guests arrived, Autumnal leaves were still on the trees; as they left, we drove through a stunning snow covered landscape.

Being able to stand inside and look out across a snowy landscape is a treat. Being warm while doing so, is a delight and a relief.

Gingerbread Snowflakes

We made gingerbread snowflakes this afternoon. Quick, easy, and fun. Making gingerbread biscuits in the shape of snowflakes is set to become a family Christmas tradition.
