“Thank goodness for the first snow, it was a reminder – no matter how old you became and how much you’d seen, things could still be new if you were willing to believe they still mattered.” – Candance Bushnell
I recently stumbled upon this quote and found it very appropriate for my current situation: sitting at my kitchen table with a cup of tea, watching Winter Storm Juno whip around outside. After a mild winter here in New Hampshire, the snow has finally arrived – in buckets, it seems. A few days before this storm, I was able to visit the Ice Castles in Lincoln, New Hampshire and appreciate winter in a whole new way. Although we can get caught up in the “blah-ness” of the season here in New England, it’s always nice to focus on the many beautiful things winter can offer.
