buckets of snow

i love snow in the city -- the buildings look so majestic with flurries icing their rooftops and windowsills. and i am an absolute child when it comes to snow -- i can lose hours just staring out the window at it, and i have to take a walk in it every time.

 especially this time. i hit a weird emotional wall and the snow sort of coincided with my mood. it's always been a habit of mine to go on long, teary-eyed, sniffling walks when i'm in a funk…and this time was perfect. i bundled up & walked straight outside…and i felt a thousand times better after holding my camera close and walking through the slowed-down, snow-filled city, stopping every so often to get a picture. it reminded me (watch out for cliches) how big the world is, how even when my problems seem huge (like bills or student loans or work), how small they really are -- and i felt that familiar snow-brought calm swallowing me up. that i'm able to go out for a midday walk, that i'm able-bodied, that i have a camera to document things with -- shows how blessed i am already. and, really, the hot chocolate at tattered cover didn't hurt either. i always recommend hot chocolate on funky-kinda-days.

  6. AH. I've been wondering how to properly word why I do like it when it first snows heavy amounts of snow - and you said it! Everything slows down. It has to. But its so great, especially in a big bustling city that always goes so fast all the time.... Great post!

  8. The snow is always SO gorgeous when it comes and so nasty when it leaves. At least in Michigan. I always try to soak it in as soon as it arrives.
