The Quiet Celebrate

24 Dec 2009

This week Brooklyn received about a foot of snow. David had the day off and we watched movies, drank hot cocoa and waited for the snow to really hit. It was night time when the snow settled in for the long haul. So we bundled up and and went outside to experience the snow falling among the brownstones. I love the quiet that snow lends to the environment, it is a hush of expectancy like no other. 

We walked to the park and I hopped on a swing. I love swings and these are in high demand during regular hours. It amazes me that adults don't nip out and take a swing more often. 

We ran through the park and slid on our boot heels, admired the light displays, and had a few, 'Ho, ho, ho's' when we saw plastic Santas in windows along our route.

Super fun.

I don't know what you celebrate in this season and I don't mean to leave anyone out but, Happy Solstice, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy

Kwanzaa. And just plain enjoy each day, as though it is a holiday, because really, each and every-single-day is just that.

I will be away for a week enjoying my Man, my family and taking each moment as it comes. I hope you are doing the same.
