    We just finally got hit with our first snow storm of the season as well. Feeling chilly and all hot-chocolate craving!

  5. What lovely festive touches.

    We had snow overnight and we are expecting a lot more before Christmas Day, so I am going to be out with my camera and will post some photos soon. After two green Christmases, I think I can say that this is definitely going to be a white one.
