The first snowstorm of the season is always exciting, when it’s sparkly and powdery and soft.
I know it’ll turn into dirty slush eventually, cold wet feet, slippery ice…
But for now, it’s beautiful. It’s a cause for celebration, and drinking peppermint hot chocolate.
This morning, I broke out my beloved faux leopard coat, which my mom found for $12 at a thrift store. Yes, she has magic thrifting powers.
The boots are also a gift from my parents. I didn’t get much chance to wear them last winter, but this winter, it looks like I will.
