First snow

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.

    What kind of camera do you have? I am dying to get a SLR….someday….


  2. Thank you everyone–I’m so glad you enjoyed the pictures! :)

    Lisa: My camera is a Konica Minolta Maxxum 5D by Canon. I absolutely love it, but in all honesty, I don’t know anything about it. My husband did all the research and found it on Craigslist for me and now I’m just messing around with it until I have time to read more about it. :)

  3. Thanks for the pictures. We very rarely get snow down here in the South so it was nice to visit it thru pictures. Beautiful!!!

  4. Apple: Thanks for visiting and posting a comment again! I’m so glad you liked the pictures. How’s the weather down South? :)
