Another day.. another day to celebrate..

Hold this snowball in your hand with me. It will only last a few seconds..
Soon it will melt away and we'll wonder where the time went. We'll wonder why
we never took the time to appreciate it more. We'll wonder what we were doing while the snow was melting..
What was it that allowed us to miss this moment?
And celebrate its freshness?
its spontaneity?

.. its contemplations..
its snuggle time..
Somehow I'll doubt that 20 years from now..
I won't regret not taking life more seriously..
because I know I take the serious things seriously..

and everything else is up for grabs..

Fabulous pics!
It is very hot and humid here so that snow looks WONDERFUL!

OK, fine! You have inspired me. I guess I just need a warmer coat. So far this winter, all I've done is whine about how cold it is, and NOT play in the snow with my children. My excuse has always been that I'm too pregnant for my cozy down ski jacket and nearly all my snugly sweaters, but with the greatest thrift store ever just a mere 20 minutes away, maybe it's time to Mommy up and throw some snowballs.

Thanks Ruby.
Oh, Mrs. P--you are so easily inspired. If you can not find what you are looking for, I'll send you something. I found this jacket at a garage sale this summer--$4.00 I think. Love the color, but I have other ones that I can share!
