This morning we woke up to pure beauty.
And we ventured out and shoveled and played.
Bounding back in we devoured pancakes and got ready for the day.
Our day was wide open. The sun was shining. So, I decided we would pretend it was more springy and embrace a world with too much snow coating the branches that should be full of buds and leaves.
We hit up a favorite walking spot. And ran, slid, and sauntered along the path.
Letting the quickly melting snow plop on our heads.
Here's Henry trying to help that snow along.
We spent a good hour meandering about and then decided to go get a treat.
I told them going in that they could order anything they wanted.
As long as it was the size of their face :)
Syd settled on a flower cookie with purple frosting.
She ate the whole thing.
Henry chose a classic chocolate chip cookie and nibbled that thing slow and steady. Leaving only a crumb.
And I sipped a large latte. Also as big as my face :)
The whole outing took about two hours.
We burned some energy, ate a treat, got out of the house, enjoyed the beauty of mother nature's winter finale, and returned home fulfilled and content.
It was a morning of saying yes to slowing down, focusing on the right stuff, and enjoying a few "just us" moments.
What are you savoring this Tuesday morning?
