Sweets, Snow, and Sentiment {December}


{the snow called us outdoors to play many times}


{some could keep up more than others}


{friends made time for reunions. one gathering was a book club of women going about 10 years strong. the one above involved college roommates that occupied an old, shag carpet 6 bedroom house in ft. collins about 15 years ago.}


{out of state family arrived to love on each other}


{constructing architecture takes a lot of prep. by the way, sweaters and baking are not recommended.}





{several pleasant, country road walks were enjoyed}


{storytime was always a highlight}





{snow + snow suits + sleds = great fun}


{with a finally of hot chocolate, whip cream, and peppermint sticks? life is sweet!}


{celebrating the heart of the season with loved ones and community}







{giving and receiving gifts of fun, beauty, and love (can you tell i was eyeing that last one for myself??)}


{soaking up and treasuring what we have, saying good-byes while eager for the next time we may share again}
