Winter Wonderland

Posted on by Angela Kauffman

Snow has been falling all day here in Illinois.  For many, that would mean the perfect opportunity to snuggle inside a warm home.  But for me, that meant braving the weather (and the roads!) to go 'picture hunting.'  I went to one of my favorite spots - a nearby lake - to see what kind of winter wonderland I could find.  I was the only soul there (of course, because everyone else was snuggled inside their warm homes) and the quietness seemed so loud.  In fact, it was so quiet that I jumped a couple of times at the startling sound of animals popping in and out of the icy lake.  But the quietness of a snowfall brings so much serenity and peace with it, don't you agree?

Winter's Enchantment

Posted on by Angela Kauffman

Winter usually makes its entrance with a lot of fanfare.  This year's first snowfall was no different.  As it blankets the city and colors it white, it forces us all to take life at a slower pace for a bit.  Snow's beauty is impressive, but at least for me, it will fail to elicit much excitement come March.  But for now, the white 'marshmallow' world it creates is magical.

"The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event.  You go to bed in one kind of world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found?" - J. B. Priestley
