The winter sun that stays out until 5:15 and spontaneous coffee/lunch dates with my mom at the Thinking Cup (my fave cozy coffee shop in Boston.)
There are definitely a few ways to get around this winter being way too long.
WINTER. It’s been winter for what seems like my whole life. I can’t remember what spring feels like, and right now that’s all I really want! After the 6th big snowstorm, I’m pretty much just over the white stuff. I haven’t run outside in almost two weeks! because no sidewalks are plowed, or if they are, it’s complete ice! Gosh.
Anyways, one day I decided to not be mad about it and instead go for a walk and embrace the quiet peacefulness of the snow. My town pretty much shut down (but not Starbucks! had some extra hot green tea with me!) and the roads were completely covered. Here are some disposable camera pictures from my little jaunt around Wellesley Square.
My winter uniform. Mountain man boots, purple pea coat, brown thrift-shop purse. =)
As cute as the snow may be… it’s for realzies time for it to go back to the North Pole. Because that’s where snow lives, right?
What are some ways you beat the snowy blues?
This book. OH THIS BOOK. I feel like I talk about it every day.
I picked this book up on a whim at the library one night, because it had a big seven on the cover and seven was my lucky number when I was a kid. (honestly, that is the only reason I even looked at it) Then I read the summary on the back, and thought “Wait, this might actually be good.”
MIGHT ACTUALLY BE GOOD?!?!
This book is so much more than good. The way author Jen Hatmaker writes is easy to follow along with, it’s like you’re chatting over coffee together. Her raw honestly throughout this experiment is refreshing.. she doesn’t “pretty it up”. You get to see into her world as a pastor’s wife and all the joy and struggle that comes along with it. It’s challenging, it makes you want to be a better person! And her humor is the best!
I could do a full review of the book, but I really just want you ALL to read it and experience it for yourselves. And one of you will be able to! I’m giving away a copy of it from now until the 16th. There are many ways to enter, and you can do some ways more than once a day. If this book has been on your to-read list, or if you’re just hearing about it for the first time today, go for it! Winner will be announced on my Facebook and Instagram pages on Monday morning, so be sure you follow along!
To win, you must be able to provide your US mailing address. Also, this isn’t sponsored. I just bought an extra copy for the purpose of giving it away!
Hey friends! I’m so excited to share this year’s only wedding promotion with you! I’m offering a $200 credit to any couple who books me as their wedding photographer between now and February 22nd.
