It snowed 😯
It started when I was coming home later last night, and stuck around long enough to greet me this morning. How sweet. It’s only a thin little layer, though, so hopefully it’ll melt away by lunch time. What I really wish we’d get is a little bit of rain! I like spring, but I have to admit that it’s not all that pretty — at least not around here. I don’t know how things are over in your neck of the woods, but they’re pretty brown and grimy here. The grass doesn’t start to turn green until late May (ish?), and the sides of the roads are littered with piles and piles of winter road grit. No complaints, though! At least the days are warm(er) and longer.
And on that happy note, I hope you guys have a great Sunday. As always, I’m sharing a little bit of link love today that you can enjoy when you’re not spending time with the three F’s — food, family, and friends 😀
See you guys tomorrow!
