The winter weather that swept across the nation this past weekend hit us around Friday. We were expecting power outages from all the ice, but thankfully our power stayed on and we were able to stay niiiice and toasty. Good thing, too, because I'm a wimp when I'm cold. Michael encouraged me to go outside and take some pictures of the ice and I'm glad I did! It was absolutely breathtaking, from beauty and the frigid cold, and it was kind of a nice little break to get some fresh air and experience the peace and quiet of the outdoors, even if I was only a few yards from our house. Sunday morning we woke up to trees falling all around us. Every few minutes we heard "crack" and them a big "boom". At least Michael will get to put his chainsaw to use, right?
Because we've been so busy lately, we both were excited to stay home and relax. Michael was amazing and let me sleep in after a long night with a runny-nosed little boy, and he even cooked us breakfast once I got up (he's pretty much a keeper, I tell ya). We cleaned just a little and then literally vegged out in front of the tv or played with Noah all day. It was glor-eee-ussss!
On Sunday, after breakfast, some music time, and a walk outside together (aka Michael assessing all the damage and calculating hours and sweat spent clearing our yard!), we made our way to Nashville to get the last of our Christmas shopping done and then went to some friends' house for an ornament swap party. It's been an amazing weekend and it's not even over yet because Michael is off Mondays. I'm absolutely in love with this season and feel so deeply blessed and thankful.
What is your favorite way to pass the time stuck indoors?
