Snowfall in Pink Hues

Well, it wasn’t actually pink snow, but the hue was definitely pink when I took these photos today. =P

Snow and More Snow

For a few minutes, the snow fell so heavily that it looked like 1″ puffs of cotton falling from the sky. It was beautiful! So we scrambled to make it outside for a couple photos.

The First Real Snow

Not just of 2015, but of this winter! We didn’t have a white Christmas, which honestly is one of the reasons we moved here to Pennsylvania. But one non-white Christmas out of 4 (or has it been five years??) isn’t too bad! Sometimes I have a hard time remembering how it was all those years, growing up in Southern California with no snow on Christmas. =P

First Snow

We had some real snowfall the other day (Nov 7th) and I completely forgot to mention it! Sure it didn’t stick, but for a while it was falling nice and hard.

April Snow


I just wanted to take a minute to point out that it’s snowing in April. I don’t think I’ll ever get used to the Pennsylvania mantra of, “Don’t plant your seeds until after Memorial Day.” I get it, snow. I don’t like it, but I get it. We been here 4 years, and each year I’m surprised by how long spring actually takes to arrive. Did I mention we just had 3 days in the 70’s?

The Snow Catcher

It’s snowing, big surprise! The news mentioned something about a “polar vortex.” I guess starting in about 20 minutes the freeze will be upon us. It’s actually quite ok outside, even though it’s snowing. So we snapped a few quick photos and then came back inside.



They Emerged From the Snow

A portrait of Anna (ok so she got a white wig but it’s still here =P) and *her* new dog. A fun way for her to always remember the newest member of our family. Thankfully all the snow that fell yesterday provided a nice white backdrop on the hill that is our front yard.

She was as white as snow

As with all my little shoots, I require a face shot. =)

Ahh Spring!

Next to autumn, spring is my favorite time of year. I look so forward to the buds on trees, flowers, birds singing… I’m not really sure when “spring” is going to come this year. I’ve never been one to poo-poo snow or winter-I absolutely love it.  I’m just a little tired of it now even though everything looks so beautiful. We took a little walk this morning to take in the snow falling.
