Snowy Morn, Silent Night...

it was a rough weekend
suffice it to say, i've enjoyed two days of chicken broth and saltines
when i awoke saturday morning, 
it was snowing.
i drug myself out of bed around 11,
bundled up
and went out under the flakes to capture the new blanket of white
snow kissed branches
one of my favorite sights
and the silence
there's nothing that sounds like the falling snow
how does it work it's magic?
such peace
even on our busy street i felt momentarily lost in a forest
tonight's silence comes, not with snow,
but with lights
you know, that moment...
after everyone else is in bed
and you're alone in the dark with the sparkling christmas tree
might be my favorite thing about this time of year
peace, perfect peace


  1. I hope you are feeling better. I do like that picture of you in the snow.

  2. Gorgeous photos and beautiful words. I hope that you are feeling better!

  3. Ah - I love that peaceful quiet at night after the little ones are in bed and the room is aglow with the lights from the tree. Hope you're feeling better!

  4. I love your words, I agree entirely with the peaceful sound of snow falling and THAT moment when you realise the kids are all asleep... bliss! Great pics too :)

  5. I love that picture! I'm hoping you are feeling better - but so glad you were able to capture the snow and let it bring a bit of peace :)

  6. Great post, I hope you feel better.

  7. I hope you feel better soon! I can't resist that new blanket of the white stuff. No matter how I try!

    It was 62 degrees here today, it felt like spring. I enjoyed the entire day with my Addie girl, I had an amazing day!

  8. Your photo is beautiful and your words are wonderful! My favorite time of December is sitting in a dark, quiet room with only the tree lights on! Nothing is more peaceful!!

  9. Hope you are feeling better! Pretty shots! (all of our snow has melted)

  10. As usual you speak directly to my heart. I love this time of year and its quiet beauty.
    Feel better!
