First Flakes of 2010

At the stroke of midnight, I waxed philosophical.  Maybe the bubbles from my sparkling limeaide went to my head or maybe it was the shock and awe of embarking upon twenty-ten, but I looked to FringeMan and said,

“This will be the year that prepares us for the rest of our lives.”

And I meant it.

Despite what FringeKid thinks.

I could almost put it in a fortune cookie, but you know how I feel about Chinese food.

So I pillowed my head, thinking about all the opportunities 2010 holds.

At the sound of a snowblower, I awoke to the first flakes of the new year.

I’m the type of person that gets cabin fever.

I just cannot sit in the house for more than a day or else I get nutty.

I should be living in a state full of sunshine, iced-coffees, and flip-flops.

But I live in a world of boots, snow plows, and dirty floors.

I’m waiting for my fortune cookie to tell me to go to the Bahamas.

Until then, I’ll make the best of the snow.

Happy 2010!

Have I ever gotten more carried away with photos?

I don’t think so.

    I LOVE all the photos and you look gorgeous, as ever! I miss the snow. Sometimes I like living in sunny Florida and other times I really wish I was back up north so enjoy it while you can because it’s really true that the grass is always greener on the other side :-) Hope you had a wonderful Christmas holiday and a happy new year!

    If you ever get that fortune cookie with the Bahama thing in it, could you send it my way when you’re finished with it! We have snow too. Not as much as you, but snow nevertheless and it’s freezing here!!

    Love the photos! Love them I tell you! And I particularly like the one of you. My God you’re beautiful. It’s just not fair that you should get all the good looks! Not fair at all!

    Love the photos. I can live without the snow. I’m a iced-coffee, flip flop wearin’ girl.

    “This will be the year that prepares us for the rest of our lives”…..hmmm….profound.
