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.
Have I ever gotten more carried away with photos?
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!

Go ahead – get carried away with photos… your family is gorgeous!!! So is the snow!!! If you come to Texas I have raspberry tea, flip flops and most days sunshine… even in the middle of winter. LOLOL
Happy New Year!!! Do you at least get to DRIVE the snow plow?
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!!
Wonderful photos. They’re so happy! I hope that’s what 2010 is all about!
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!
You is cute!
Ditto, Hatchick. That IS profound. Get READY!

As I look out my window at my own snow, I lift my iced coffee in a toast to you, FG. To flip flops!
Hat Chick says
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.
Just so you know, I love it when you get carried away with the photos!
Our new year began with snowflakes (and getting outside to play in it!) too. So fun!
Great pictures. Thanks for sharing some snow with a Floridian! And I love Fringe Kid’s flowered hat and matching gloves. Happy New Year!
Happy New Year! I’m waiting for that fortune cookie too!
Mama Belle says
2010 will be great! Now, that looks like a real snow. Fun.
Happy New Year Fringegirl–you’re the best!
