Even though we Southern folks may be a bit skittish about news of predictions for snow, as we make a mad dash for milk, eggs and bread, (after all, we don’t have many snow plows available to address the two inch “drifts”), we balance our caution with the giddiness of school children, who received a bonus holiday – a SNOW DAY!
I think we also enjoy the rare, pristine beauty of a snowfall. It’s especially magical, if we are able to watch the flakes quietly dance down through the lights of the evening. It brings a rare moment of peace, as life slows down . . . just a little . . . just enough to have time to reflect on the wonders of nature.
If you live in an area, where the snow is abundant, you can color me a little “pea green with envy”, during this time of year. If you are in warmer parts, here are some winter room settings and accents to help you make your Christmas dreams come true!
During this holiday season, as you prepare to address your lists, things to do, places to be and people to see, close your eyes and imagine a quiet snowfall, breathe deeply, and feel the wonderment of the moment.
Cheers to You! Wanda
