Swiss Mocha Morning...


We woke to a landscape covered in a fluffy blanket of white this morning. I told myself as I dressed to go for my morning run that I would NOT take pictures of the snow and post on this blog.



After all... we have all seen a TON of snow photos lately... and why would we want more???




Clearly, I could not resist. I was hardly able to gobble down breakfast quick enough to enlist Evan on a morning hike for photos.



There is something about the snow that brings out a childlike wonder...



The footsteps going away... they are mine. I was the first one through this beautiful archway earlier on my run. It was magical. First footsteps... so quiet... so clean... so perfect...




I'm thinkin' the furs need to be out of storage for today.
I met an old friend along the way. It was so good to get a hug.



Old Glory had snow over each star when I ran past. The snow must have hung on the seams... by the time we returned on our walk, the breeze had cleared away much of the snow... it was still beautiful... flying free.



Cute cottages...



Snow surrounded porches...



The Fish Boys' pond...



Yep, the wonderland walk ended with a hot, steaming cup of Swiss Mocha with whipped cream on top (sugar-free and light, of course! LOL!).

I love your photos, especially the snow on the iron fence! It's so rare here that when it snows, you can bet I'll be posting some photos!

You have what we lack...snow. Want some!

I am glad you changed your mine and took some pictures. Those are gorgeous. We don't have any snow here in Houston, so I am enjoying looking at all the places that do. My favorite is the one with the your footprints on the sidewalk with the coated trees. Beautiful!

Isn't that the truth! Even though we have heard all about everyone else's snow ours seems the most special! Great pictures and way to go running in the snow.

I never get tired of seeing the beautiful pictures of the most perfect snow. This snow fall was especially perfect, so light, fluffy and powdery. My favorite pic is the one of the trees lining the sidewalk with your footprints in the snow. Just perfect! So glad you got out and enjoyed the sites and came back to a warm cup of mocha! Stay warm!

I love the shots you captured. Just beautiful. What beautiful homes are in your area. I love to see a body of water surrounded by snow. That shot you got is my favorite.

Your pictures are just beautiful! I especially love the one of the walkway with your footprints...very artistic! I applaud you for being willing to get out in the weather...and in return didn't miss the beauty of it!

Hi again, thanks for coming by. I am guessing you are Italian since you are called Noni. My daughter in law is Italian and so of course her parents will be called noni and nono. I think that is right.

Terri Smith said...

Thanks for popping over to my place! Got a good chuckle from the rooster botox analogy. I joined up with you too. I've been taking another look around on your lovely site, and the sweetest, most joyous photos for me today are of "your little man!" How precious is that one???? My my my! Hope you're having a wonderful Valentine's Day!

Blessings, joy and sunshine from the Peach State, Terri
