I am as shocked as anyone else here in North Texas, but it actually snowed on Christmas day. It wasn’t a sleeting or an instantly melting winter mix either. There was a good couple of inches of snow on the ground. Thankfully I had my Long Johns, camera, and an adorable Husky to help me survive this elusive thing called “cold.”
The weather on Christmas day also reminded me how incredibly beautiful and breathtaking nature can be. It’s easy to forget if you’re someone like me that is driving around more concrete and pavement than grass and trees. Sometimes it’s just nice to take a minute (or 30) and admire the natural world that surrounds us.
I hope everyone has a great New Year’s, and remember to take some quiet time for yourself in this fast-paced world we live in.
