I am definitely not a fan of winter, especially in Minnesota. It seems to go on forever. By the time February rolls around I am completely ready for it to be over. My impatience with winter grows each year that passes and I dream of living somewhere much warmer and milder some day. There are those moments, however, that the beauty of winter catches me by surprise and my negative view of winter softens…at least a little. Yesterday was one of those days. We had a light fluffy snow fall over night and the sun was shining bright in the morning. It was sparkly and magical looking outside with the snow glistening on the ground and in the trees. I decided to take my camera out and take some random shots of this winter wonderland. Soaking in the winter sunshine also does wonders for the spirit! Happy Valentine’s Day!!
