It just doesn’t feel like winter without snow

Thank you so much to everyone who commented, snapchatted or messaged me feedback to my last post! If you haven’t checked it out and told me what you think of my early 2016 blog plans, please let me know what you think! I’ve gotta be honest with you, the idea of making videos and posting […]






Snowfalls lead to magical forests and beautiful walks

For the last week, I’ve been blessed with a winter wonderland and what seemed like non-stop snow falls for days! Now if you don’t know this already, let me tell you… I looooove snow! It makes me feel like a little kid from the moment I see my first snowflake in the very first snow […]






Magical snowflakes

I found this short film by Joe Simon on The Owl Diary. Joe Simon is a wedding cinemetographer who lives in Austin, TX. He wanted to capture the abnormal snowfall in Austin and came up with this lovely little film. The forecast can’t make up it’s mind on whether or not it’ll snow here in […]






Snow days were always some of my very favorite

I’ve been hearing from so many how they’ve had enough of snow and winter, but I absolutely love it and haven’t had enough! I wanted to share these photos with you to remind you of the beauty of snow and winter. So many of my friends keep telling me about all the snow they’re getting […]






Freezing in Zürich

I went to Zürich between Christmas and the New Year for the first time. I’ve driven past it many times and flew into the Zürich airport, but I’ve never had the chance to actually walk in the city. It’s hard to believe that Zürich is Switzerland’s largest city. Most big cities that I’m used to […]






Starry night lights

Switzerland’s Christmas lights are some of the most simple and beautiful lights I’ve seen. They are vertical wires with lights that dangle from cables strung from building to building. It creates a starry night effect. In some parts of town, while walking directly under them, it feels as though you are in an indoor small […]






Illuminated world

Merry Christmas!

I woke up this morning to the beautiful sight of snow falling outside my window. I got my wish for a white Christmas and my family together for the first time in five years! I hope for all of you that your wishes come true and that you have a lovely holiday. I may post […]






This is my winter song to you

This has been my favorite winter song for a few years now. It’s not really a Christmas song, mind you. It probably helps that the two singers/writers are some of my very favorite: Sara Bareilles and Ingrid Michaelson. The song is on a Christmas album with a really nice collaboration of songs, The Hotel Café […]






Walking in a winter wonderland

Today marks the winter solstice of this year and the official beginning of winter so I thought I’d share some of my snowy photos with you that I’ve taken within the past few weeks. I’ve been interested in the winter solstice ever since I read Jerry Spinelli’s book Love, Stargirl. Mostly what surprised me is […]
