Sisters in the Snow

It snowed all last night and through most of today. It was really exciting for my sister, who lives in Florida, to experience the winter wonderland outside. We spent most of the day sitting around the house, watching movies and hanging out, reading and drinking hot chocolate...but together, which was nice since we only see each other a few times a year. And then we went outside to play in the snow and take pictures.

I've had this sweater for several years and it's a staple of my wardrobe year round. At one of my jobs, the temperature is kept in the 50's all year, so I've taken to carrying my oatmeal-colored, wool sweater with me there. The scarf is a new find from yesterday, and has very quickly become a favorite. Kate and I took the bus to the next town over and spent the day shopping, perusing a really amazing used book store that I recently discovered, visiting one of my most beloved vintage stores, and chatting for hours over tea at a local cafe. It was a wonderful day.

Tomorrow we leave for Florida and I still need to pack...and spend a few more hours tonight watching movies with two of my favorite people in the world. I'll be back in a week; I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday!

  14. Hi! I fell upon your blog through another blog! Your style is so cute. I love colors you are wearing despite the bleakness of the white snow. I am in Chicago so we didn't get nearly as much snow as you!

  18. ohwhee I love that scarf! Mint is always a breath of fresh air, heehee, in all sense of the word. I'm jealous you get to slush around in snow with your sister, I see my sister tomorrow too! But without the presence of snow.

    Have a tremendous time in Florida sisters!!
