The First Snowfall

The first snowfall of the year is always magical, and while I kept telling myself I was glad it had been so unseasonably warm this winter (ie: in the low 40s) there was no denying the slight smile on my face this morning when I left the theater building and felt a little flurry, nor the even bigger grin when I looked out my window a few hours later to some real, genuine, bona-fide snow.

How could you not feel content to gaze out at this all day long? Snow falling slowly, perfectly, and beautifully. I wish the camera could capture that.

Even the garbage bags manage to look almost romantic. And I do think the reflection of my light is a rather nice touch. There's a lot more snow built up since I took these too.

It makes me want to douse myself in hot chocolate, sprinkles, and sequins and wear big puffy white gloves, winter hats and party dresses, but alas, much work is yet to be done. Somehow, I think it's going to be hard to get myself back in the mindset of writing my play... which happens to be set in a summer camp. I know in a few months I'll be eating my words (or not, seeing as I've only got two more week in Ithaca this winter: the harshest part usually comes in January and February and I'll be overseas) but honestly, right now, I choose winter.

And for holiday food inspiration, I'm once again drooling over tastespotting.

Alright, back to work. Or at least to trying.



  1. We haven't had any snow, but it was nice and foggy which I appreciated (or I would have appreciated if I had been able to get out of bed and take pictures). I love the sequined stuff!

  2. i love winter wear...but so often i wind up covering those cute dresses with sweatshirts. :)
