It's the Little Things: Snow Day
This week has been one of those whirlwinds of early morning meetings, after work plans, and the feeling of never being completely awake. I'll attribute the latter to the blanket of snow that fell over the Treasure Valley yesterday, covering us with inches of beautiful powder. For many, especially those in the snow industry, the anticipation has been intense as slopes can't open, rentals aren't being made, and businesses are suffering. Despite the added time it takes to get anywhere and the necessary layers and boots, this snow was welcomed with open arms by all. Now, it has turned into rain, the sky is a light, sleepy gray, and drops are pitter pattering on my windows. I'm happy that such simple moments of life can bring so much warmth and contentment. It's wonderful to live in a place that embraces going outside, taking in the sweet smelling air, and truly enjoying what's around you. I feel very lucky - and ready to have a snowball fight!
