a snow day and cake

DSC_0375It’s been a while. No, I haven’t given up on this blog. I think about it frequently, actually. In November life sped up when I went back to work. Then the holidays came and went. It’s been a whirlwind to say the least.

But this weekend was a significant one for the books. We celebrated Juniper turning one! Her birthday was technically last weekend, and although we had a party planned we had to cancel it. It feels like we’ve been sick on and off for a month. I’m not going to meticulously count the days because I’m scared to find out that’s the case, even though I’m pretty sure it is. We finally came out of the woods, or virus-ville, this past week. So, we rescheduled her party for this weekend. Lo and behold, a massive blizzard came right through our yard! So, we cancelled everything except cake and it we had a fantastic time!

With work and school both cancelled we experienced our first official snow days on Friday AND Saturday! It was pretty magical having our family safe and warm in one place while the storm took over our town outside. A snow walk occurred. There were snow balls thrown. We made attempts to sled on a cardboard box, in laundry basket, and a shovel, none of which worked. And there was cake. Here are some photos from our snowed in birthday celebration!

Happiest of Birthdays, dear Juniper. We are endlessly in love with you.
