If you live in a part of the country where you're ready to bid farewell to snow, I apologize for the following flaky excitement. Here in Nashville, winters can be either sunny and 55 or gray and below 0. We have waited and waited and I am so happy you are really here Winter! I do love the first snow. Sometimes the first can be the last so it is to be savored for certain. The rooms in the house are slowly growing to glow brighter as the dusting on the grass becomes a thin cotton batting.
While we're nested indoors anyway it reminds me to make some movie recommendations. If you want to curl up on the couch and laugh and cry on Valentines day, please do so with these movies: Eagle vs. Shark and After the Wedding. They are equally amazing films but totally different. Both about love though. One awkward, one complex. And we've all been talking like New Zealanders (or trying to) for more than week now after watching Eagle vs. Shark twice. We rented the dvd the first time. Then a few days later we couldn't stand it anymore and rented again from itunes. Jeff, Juliana and I huddled around the laptop on the couch in the dark with Smarties and blankets. Absolutely love this film. We went around the dinner table last night taking turns at quoting the film, competing for the best accent and inflection. I am the very best at it, without a doubt. If Jeff or Juliana should comment on this and say otherwise, just ignore them.
Going to make coffee (again) and stare out the windows. Love from here xoAM
