Irving Berlin's song "Snow" keeps playing in my head. It has snowed here, off and on, for the past two days. Unfortunately, none of that snow has been sticking around down here, but it has sure been sticking around in the higher elevations:

The view from my deck (9/26/2013)
I love snow, so I'm happy. Today those snowy mountains are completely socked in and we've had three different, short, episodes of snow. All that's missing for me is a fire in the fireplace and/or the wood stove...but we don't have any wood laid in, so that can't happen just yet.

This place is proving to be my zen garden...a place of rest, rejuvenation, joy, inspiration....perfection. I hope I can say that after my first full winter here. ;)

"Snow, oh, to see a mountain covered with a quilt of snow!" Irving Berlin knew just how I feel about SNOW!

Fall in the Pretty

I now live in a truly gorgeous part of the country. Every morning and every evening, I look out the windows in my livingroom, past my deck, at a view that takes my breath away. And this fall, the colors being painted on the landscapes around here are outstanding. If you want to see some awesome fall colors in a gorgeous location, head south from Jackson to Alpine...we've got some very serious Pretty around here!

Always take the time, little ones, to fall into the pretty...wherever you find it.
