Yesterday as I was walking to my car I was surprised to see snow swirling around.
I don’t know why I’m always in denial that summer is indeed over. I’m not ready to face the cold. Embrace the snow. Endure the months of darkness.
Fall is a quick relief from the heat, but sometimes I wish we could just go from summer to fall to spring.
Except that the holidays would be odd. When we lived in California, December was never quite the same without the snow.
And it’s easier to get in the spirit of decorating the house when the temperature drops below 50.
I finally broke down and put out my first winter decoration this past weekend.
An easy one that can last through the holidays and all the way till April.
Yes, it snows till April here.
A pack of pinecones from the dollar store.
These sweet mercury glass votives from Target.
Classic white pillar candles.
All piled on a mirrored tray.
A simple and quiet nod to the impending cold season.
