We have south facing windows in our living room.

In the summer, the sun shines outside the windows and sends its warm rays to our front porch.

In the winter, the sun sneaks further inside to our living room and onto our rug - much to the delight of our sunbathing puppy.

It highlights the dog hair that I have yet to vacuum, and creates wondrous little pockets of warmth for us to enjoy when the outside temperature remains frigid.

It reminds me that sometimes the warmest parts of my living room are right next to the deepest shadows.

Which is probably a metaphor for something important, but I’m too busy snuggling up next to my puppy to figure that out. ;) Happy February!

When you grow up in Minnesota, snow is normal.

In fact, my very first experience ever driving a car was in a foot of snow. It just became a regular part of our lives for 6 months out of the year in the frozen tundra of the northland.

But when you have a kid, you start to see things through their eyes.

Normal becomes extraordinary. Simple observation becomes amazement.

And… also… babies look pretty cute in the snow. ;) (So there’s that.)
