Will wonders never cease? It SNOWED. It snowed it snowed it S N O W E D! Our amazing ocean keeps the air just warm enough to give us rain when others get snow. A fair tradeoff. But OH how we always wish for snow.
And today, our prayers were answered. It was like Christmas. My nine year old woke me up at 7 a.m. with eyes full of wonder. Mom… it snowed! And from that moment on, she never stopped.
BEFORE coffee, she and I wrapped ourselves up tight and went outside. It was just her and I alone in the quiet. Everything was silent, pure and untouched. We walked around the block in wonder, talking in hushed voices. It was magical.
And from then on, it was adventure after adventure. Snowball fights with the teenagers, powdery snowmen and ice cold walks in a never seen before winter wonderland.
It was the perfect day.
