Sick days and snow days don’t overlap, or so a friend told the husband in response to my illness yesterday.
Remember that snow? Well, it turned into 5ish inches between Sunday afternoon and Monday afternoon.
Pretty cool huh? Today, it’s just cold. Really cold. Like -14 with windchill cold.
Sadly, I was very, very sick yesterday, which was not what I had planned for my snow day. Hopefully, though, the illness has passed and I am venturing out into the country and taking photos, because there are some amazing shots to be had when it comes to snow.
For now, enjoy some of these from Sunday, and I will be back soon.

Wanna see my holidays?
|Belated Family Thanksgiving|
Last year, we started a tradition of doing Thanksgiving after the fact. We wanted one holiday which we could spend with all of our friends, since a lot of people travel for the others. Last year was a lot of fun, and this year did not disappoint.
And, we went to a Hanukkah party. Remember?
|Ugly Sweater Party|
And then there was an ugly sweater party with some past coworkers. I wore a Santa sweater.
In between, I turned 23 which meant a spectacular spaghetti party with good friends. Have I told you that I kind of love my life?
Then, of course my parents were in town for a week which was a blast. I love the wrapping paper EVERYWHERE after opening gifts. Some of my favorite photos.
And finally, we make it to New Years Eve where we went to a masquerade ball. I made our masks, curled my hair, wore make up and a cute blue party dress. It felt like -15 outside but it was worth it. We danced to the Beatles and we rang in the New Year. That put 2011 off to an amazing start.
How were your holidays?
Below are some of my favorites.
This is a really photo heavy post, just as a warning.
My parents and I, along with a once dear friend went on a family vacation to Santa Fe as a last time thing. And that was wonderful too. Please note that my mom and dad look exactly the same in 2006 as they do now. Thank you good genes.
I have so many others, but I really like these. It’s really cool to find photos like this again. And to see how I’ve change…wow! I’m loving this.
