Winter Ice Storm

Dec 9, 2013

Fri­day, all of Frisco was cov­ered in a blan­ket of ice and sleet. Thank­fully, we were lucky enough to keep our elec­tric­ity but lots of oth­ers were not. Since I love win­ter so much I had to step out­side and snap some pho­tos as the land­scap­ing was so gor­geous enveloped in ice. There is some­thing so calm­ing to me being out­side in the win­ter. I love breath­ing the crisp air, feel­ing the cold on my cheeks and my nose run­ning from the chill in the air. Win­ter truly is my favorite season.

Dur­ing the day, I enjoyed sit­ting in my stu­dio sip­ping hot choco­late while work­ing and watch­ing a lit­tle girl ice skate up and down our street with her friends run­ning along her side. This is the first time I’ve ever seen any­one wear­ing ice skates out­side in north Texas. She and her friends gig­gled, slid and ran around enjoy­ing every minute of their snow day. It was so cute to watch and made me miss Terri and Ans­ley run­ning in and out with all their friends enjoy­ing their snow day. This truly feels like a blink of an eye.

    I live in North Texas too and Love tak­ing these types of pho­tos when we have Win­ter weather. We got so much ice with this storm (start­ing Thurs­day night) that it’s still too slick for me to walk around out­side to take pics. I stood at my back­door and took some Friday. :)
