And it Snowed on the Eighth Year

This is a quick post to declare "There is snow!”

So, of course, I had to rush outside this morning with my camera before it melted away.

Why does the snow today make me happy?

Well, it is rather beautiful.

And it does take me back to a day,

eight years ago, when the snow fell outside an old clinker brick church

like soft, lazy feathers, as we kissed and hugged our friends and family.

Yes, eight years ago on a Saturday like this we were married.

One of my finer decisions in life, I must say.

Honey, ya cleaned up real nice ;-)

Thank you, everybody! Habby managed to secretly organize a babysitter so we had a lovely anniversary celebration last evening - even though the actual date falls on a Tuesday this year.

The snow did really add to the romance on our wedding day as it was one of the first snowfalls of the year, falling softly with just a hint of festivity about it :)
