I know why

It's been easy lately to question why we moved here.  We left everyone and everything behind for a new life in Ohio.  As most of you know it was to be closer to family and the painful lesson of betrayal and being hurt by those you thought had your best interest in mind has really spoiled the taste.  Luckily there are still a few family member I like being around and we are making this work.

Tuesday evening/night we got about 4 inches of beautiful snow.  Many of you know what I'm talking about when I say it was the good kind - heavy flakes that immediately stuck to whatever surface they hit so the inches grew quickly.  Looking out over our property it was so glorious to see how the snow had fallen.  The drifts in places were almost a foot high!  Trekking through the drifts to reach the barn was an adventure!  Wednesday I worked from home due to the road conditions, so yesterday as I drove into work I literally was awestruck at how beautiful the trees were.  I tried to take photos with my iPhone but that was a joke, so the pic here is NOT my own, but it's close enough to what I saw all along my drive in yesterday. 

This morning's drive wasn't as pretty because of the warm temps we had yesterday.  The snow on the trees is gone, but the images I have from yesterday still linger in my minds eye and I know, once again, why we came here. 


  1. It is indeed beautiful, like a snow globe.

  2. I love that kind of snow, where it's quiet and you can sometimes here the heavy snowflakes hitting the ground. Living in the south we don't get much snow so I kinda get home sick for Iowa and the lovely snow we had there. Then, I slap myself and remember why I left! LOL I am glad things are looking better for you. Look for the positive in every day things, it makes it easier.
