snow, looking cute as ever in her new snowsuit. The snow is piling up everywhere right now: berries, apples in the orchard beside us, across the lake (the view out my new office window) and at Apex, where Ivy and I enjoyed Hanna's birthday party a week ago. Gwen's got a super nice place up there, and they've had an enormous dump of snow in the past few days. Must be all right to be living at a ski resort when there's a foot of fresh powder.
Tannis also caught me pulling the girls around the yard on the sled, getting some much-needed exercise after the white stuff ended my biking season (prematurely, I might add) -- I think it's a great photo. We've been really cozy in the new house, feeling like we live in the country again for the first time since we were both kids ourselves.
