A Snow Day

Posted on: February 17, 2015

When you live in Virginia Beach,

any snow on the ground is a Big Deal!

I almost feel guilty at the delight my homeschooling teen and I had over the snow, 

Knowing my daughter in Boston is getting another dumping of the stuff!  


We rarely get temperatures under freezing and with our highs today at 20,

I instantly knew today was the day for my cashmere turtleneck sweater!  

I am not much for turtlenecks, but I am also not much for freezing….


I had full smiles going on today ,

as the snow had just begun to fall and my son’s joy was contagious…

My young photographer mentioned my smile as some days he peers through

the camera and tells me he needs a “real smile”   

He then proceeds to make crazy dancing antics to illicit a satisfactory expression… 

I love that he notices that and cares so much!  


Any day I get to wear my cobalt tribal print jeans from Diane Gilman is a good day…

I never get tired of these and liked adding the F21 necklace to play off the shapes in the pants.

I have to mention that an outfit with two strong colors is very pleasing to my eye. 


My daughter choose a new, more body con black leather jacket this year for Christmas

and gave me this one since my black one has decoration and this plain one is more versatile. 


I am grateful for the fun mood in my house today, in anticipation of snow!  

I am grateful for all the texting today with my college kids sharing the joy with their brother and me.  

I am grateful with a nice Facebook conversation with a girlfriend from my teen years. 

I am grateful for a great day of connection as  also texted with my best friend, making plans to spend this weekend with her and even chatted with my sister-in-law in Boston.  

I am grateful for the fun my dog had going out in the snow… he didn’t want to come in…

Cute…you almost don’t realize you have a turtleneck on since I’m so drawn to the necklace!!! Jodie

Great point! thanks for the viewpoint!

Your joyful smile is evident in these pictures! Hope you enjoy your snow. We got 12 inches yesterday here in north central Kentucky. It came at a good time for me as my husband had back surgery two weeks ago which ended up being much more involved with a week-long hospital stay rather than one night as we had been told. This extra time at home with snow days from school has been very helpful.

I like your jacket! Forgive me for rattling on about my life. I enjoyed keeping up with your blog during the long days and nights at the hospital.

No problem rattle away! Wow, that’s quite a difference between on day stay and a week long one.. Getting a break from school is timely… Hope you get a chance to relax!
