Winter gives Summer its sweetness

"For how can one know color in perpetual green, and what good is warmth without cold to give it sweetness?" -John Steinbeck

I am a summer girl through and through.  But I sure do agree that the bitter coldness of winter makes those summer months all the more enjoyable.  You don't know how good the warm sun feels until you've experienced the bone chills of the snow.  I am thankful to experience both in their fullness.

This week I am enjoying the bits of Christmas magic scattered throughout my home. It certainly endears me to the cold month of December.



  1. I am also a warm weather girl, give me 75 and sunny and that is my sweet spot but I am going to try to find one beautiful thing each day this winter. Thanks for the inspiration with your beautiful photos.

  2. I LOVE your gingerbread house picture!!! We are planning to decorate it this weekend -- I got skittles and pretzel sticks too!! Keep embracing winter --- it's hard for me too. I'm such a flip-flop girl...
