There’s always something magical about the first snow of the season that makes me feel like a child again.
I can’t help but smile and excitement floats on the air with every snowflake.
But rather than grabbing a hat and coat to go frolic in the snow like I did as a child, now I grab my camera and go sleuthing for pretty pictures.
I went to the front yard and looked around.
As I turned here and there, snapping pictures and enjoying the quiet beauty that surrounds a snowstorm, I suddenly and unexpectedly found my mailbox to be a thoroughly romantic subject!
Wow, I loved my mailbox before, but now I loved it even more.
This kind of mailbox symbolizes a true home to me.
Our old mailboxes never quite cut it for me. There’s something very un-homey to me about mass metal boxes that require a key to get your mail.
So when we bought our home, this mailbox was one of my favorite parts of it!
Now I can look out my front window and sigh.
I have a real mailbox now. All is well with the world.
Little did I realize that my homey mailbox could also be oh-so romantic in the dim light of a snow storm.
Now all I need is a blanket, a hot cup of cocoa and my Prince Charming to snuggle by our fire and enjoy the view.
