winter wonderland

“Between every two pines is a doorway to a new world.”
-John Muir

This Christmas J and I woke up to a sparkling, glittering, shimmering neighborhood of brilliant white snow.

A truly white Christmas.

Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined a place this beautiful. Growing up mostly in North Carolina, I had a lot of “sunny Christmasses” – on occasion we would have a “pseudo-white” Christmas- but nothing ever came close to the glistening blanket that covered our front yard this year.

Being a winter-loving girl at heart, I reveled in the fluffy tufts of gleaming snow on our porch. I breathed in a gulp of fresh minus five air, and smiled at the two hours of daylight. What a beautiful world we live in. What a bright, fantastic place we get to explore.

So the merriest of Christmas’ to all of you! And all the joy I can send from Alaska to you.

Have you ever had a white Christmas? I would love to hear about it.

Him and Her. Life and Narrative. Married, partnered, friends. Simple and sweet. The ups and downs together. Be kind, be caring, be loving. A theatre artist and a military officer. Living in Alaska, often long distance. We explore, we write, we share. We love to travel, eat, listen to music, try new things, be present each day, and live a minimal lifestyle.
