This is what every New Yorker wants: 1. a beautiful snow day, preferably with gentle flakes that stick to the ground (but not to your eyelashes), creating a white wonderland 2. for the weather to immediately get warm the next day and melt all that snow away.
I love living in New York. I hate the grueling winters that make me absolutely dread going outside, even though I love being outdoors always, but when those beautiful flakes hit the city, it makes those 5 months we spend in below freezing weather worth it.
We were anticipating this snow storm all week. We’re typically early risers, but on Saturday we woke up before sunrise, set the heater next to the window and watched the first snowflakes speckle down onto the street. It’s all so magical! Even four winters in the city later, watching the snow still gives me this extremely giddy feeling — one I can only assume a child gets, haha! 😝
When the sun rose and the clouds dissipated a little, we layered up and got our butts onto the streets. We walked toward the Williamsburg bridge for a little and met a puppy who brought his ball over to me! I always say dogs love me because they know how much I love them and I think this scenario just proves it. Jay snapped a few quick pics, which warms my heart because he knew how much I would treasure those pictures, then we made our way into one of our favorite neighborhood bars and took some more pictures along the way!
I decided to wear my Free People earmuffs that I snatched before winter because I love all things furry (faux, of course) and pink. I’ve ultimately decided that these earmuffs are completely up my alley — Jay thinks they look extremely silly, but they warm up my ears and I think they’re adorable. Wear what makes you feel good, girls! 🙋🏻=🐰
After we got home, we made some white chocolate hot cocoa and put on The Day After Tomorrow (obviously his choice because why would it make sense to watch an apocalyptic film about the next ice age when it’s blizzarding outside… 🙄) and started to vacation plan for my last spring break! We decided on a location but our plans aren’t completely set yet. So I’ll share those with you once they are — but get excited because we are going somewhere very tropical!! Can’t ask for more than vacation planning on a snowy January day. 😊
