Walking in a Winter Wonderland

My sleep schedule is officially messed up.
The past three nights we have gone to bed around 2:30am and I have slept for 30 minutes, and woke up around 3am wide awake. Yesterday I decided instead of laying in bed waiting for sleep that wasn't going to come, I would get up and go take pictures of the snow.

So, at 7am I was shin deep in snow, walking around looking like a crazy person taking pictures.
The good thing about being up so early?
McDonald's breakfast!
This was from the night before when it started snowing.

I love living in a winter wonderland! However, I am scared to death to drive on snowy/icy roads. 
And we are out of milk which means no snow ice cream OR hot chocolate.

Do you like snow or do you prefer warmer weather?



  1. The snow is beautiful! But, I don't like the cold. I am definitely someone who wants to view the winter wonderland from indoors. I'm very grateful it doesn't snow where I live!

  2. I miss the snow more than anyone can imagine and your pictures are so gorgeous they make me miss it even more!! I will live vicariously through all of your snow pictures and be extremely jealous of you when it is 80 here this weekend :(

  3. Do you even know what would happen if that kind of snowstorm came through Alabama?? God, I'd hate to even imagine. And your pictures are gorgeous, you should sell them to a catalog. :) <3333

  4. Beautiful! It looks like we won't be getting snow this year in the Valley in Oregon. Boo.

  5. These are such gorgeous pictures, Whit! You are such a good photographer!! Makes me wanna be there, all bundled up drinking hot chocolate (assuming you got milk, of course). I love cold weather but I'm like you, I haaaate driving in it. Getting out in it at all, for that matter. It's just pretty to look at!

  6. such beautiful photos!!! and SO beautiful where you live!! ahh, take me away! i love that you broke out of the house at three in the morning to take photos and to get mcd's - so awesome!! i am in love with the winter and fall...love those seasons. there's just something about them.
    i hope you didn't have to drive anywhere and had fun staying cozy inside. <3<3<3
    have a wonderful wednesday, whitney!

  7. SNOW!!!!!!! I love it! I wish I had been there. I LOVE snow. We don't get as much here in Kentucky as I would like. Lovely photos.

  8. I've never lived in snow and I'm cold all the time even here where the weather is warm so I think I'd have a hard time with it. It's definitely beautiful. Hope you get your sleep schedule fixed. When I can't sleep I rarely want to get up because I hope that somehow laying there is "rest" which will help me through a long day on no sleep. It doesn't but oh well.

  9. wow this pics are amazing, lovely like a film


  10. These pictures are gorgeous! I love that you went out to take pictures! I should do the same when I can't get to sleep or stay asleep.

    I prefer colder weather over warmer weather because I always feel that I can get warm when I'm cold but when It's hot, it's very hard to get cooled.

  11. as much as I am ready for spring and tired of snow those pictures are gorgeous!
