A Weekend in Winter Wonderland...

Hi Everybody! I'm just stopping by to wish you all a great weekend! The past few days have been bitterly cold here on the East Coast. After all my complaining about it never snowing, we FINALLY got some snow! And along with it... some seriously low temperatures outside! It started snowing on Thursday afternoon, and by Friday morning, everything was covered in a beautiful, thick blanket of heavy white snow. And since it looked so pretty and sparkly from the warmth of our home, we decided to go out for a two hour long walk in it, not realizing that it was 5 deg F/-15 deg C outside! It was super cold (so cold that I even wore a hat! And I never wear hats, because I look terrible in them!) and windy, but it was a beautiful day walking through the nature trails around our neighborhood!


What's better than a big cup of hot English Breakfast tea on a cold, snowy morning?! And yes, that's still our Christmas tree in the background, I'm trying to put off packing it away for as long as possible. And since there is snow outside, that's even more reason to keep it up for a couple more days! Also, how cute is this mug? It's one of my favorite Christmas presents my husband got me this year; it makes my morning tea taste even better!




I love how everything is so still and quiet after it has snowed, and I wanted to share some pictures of our Winter Wonderland with you today. I hope you all have a great weekend, and if you live in one of the areas that got a lot of snow this week, stay warm and stay safe on the roads! Come back tomorrow for a fun DIY project!

  1. Wow, that's freezing!! When we get snow here the whole country comes to a standstill, goodness knows what would happen if we had that much and it got that cold. We've just taken down our tree this morning, I hated doing it. Love your cup too :) Laura@baking in pyjamas

    1. Thanks, Laura! I guess I should start thinking about taking the tree down in a couple of days... it's always a sad day! Happy new year to you!
