negative degrees + pops of red

It snowed the first snow of 2014 here in Colorado and it was just as beautiful as always. There is some crazy statistic that Colorado has over 300 days of sunshine – it is basically true. It snowed all day Saturday and then the sun was out the rest of the week.

I always find it funny that it can be sunny and freezing (like literally negative temperatures), sunny and snowing, and sunny and raining. But then again, I never could comprehend living in Arkansas and having it be HOT when it was raining or hot when it was cloudy! #weird. Anyways, we got out of the house and froze our bums off but we did replenish our food (grocery store trip!) and saw The Secret Life of Walter Mitty with a Christmas gift card! BTW it is a wonderful film and I highly suggest you see it!

  • Yep. It's hot and sticky most of the time here in SC. Although right now it seems like the world is freezing over (dramatic… but we don't see cold!) I think I could live with the extreme cold if there was sunshine all the time though! P.S. I've been looking for some good fingerless mittens!!
