Winter wonders



So I've been living in awe of nature over the past three days. Everytime I think I've seen the most beautiful winter landscape ever, God taps me on the shoulder and points out something new. EVERYTHING is completely covered in white, and with the deep gray of the sky, it just takes your breath away. It started three days ago on my way home from work- deep gray sky, totally white trees, deer in the field. I ran inside to get my camera as soon as I got home. But by the time I was suited up to go outside, all the light had changed. Still beautiful, but everything was blue. The next day I brought my camera to work with me and took pictures on the way in. Interestingly, it turns out that our little town was the only place that had this type of landscape. Once you dropped down a little in elevation, there wasn't any ice or snow on the trees at all. So Dan had not seen this yet because it's dark when he goes to work and dark by the time he gets home. I kept telling him how amazing it was and he listened, but I could tell he didn't know what I was talking about. So this morning we got up and went for a drive all over town because the trees are still covered. We went for a walk around the back yard and spent a good chunk of time today staring out the windows after we were too cold to be outside anymore. I know a lot of people are not big fans of winter, but I can't imagine being without it.

Okay, I've said it on Facebook, but these are beautiful pics. That coming from someone who's freezing her butt off in Kansas at the moment.
