Actually, today featured a BIG happy - a snow day!
It's hard to express how much I love snow days...a day off work, with no commute, no plans (since I would have been at work), beautiful snowy landscape outside, warm comfy clothes inside...I could go on. Snow days could be #1-100 of my little happies!
Today was especially magical because it barely started snowing last night, but when we woke up this morning everything was white.

|9 inches of snow! That's a lot for here in the "south" (DC/suburban MD)|
|Little playhouse in the yard - just thought it looked cute in the snow!|
Because I get to indulge my inner homemaker (stifled by having to work full time) and do things like:
Make slow-cooker chili. YUM! One of our favorite meals.
Recipe, in case you'd like to try it:
|sorry it's sideways! and I never add the mushrooms FYI|
On snow days I wear my slippers ALL day, except when I'm out playing in the snow, of course
|Xmas gift from Mr. M, plus matching socks, haha|
And on snow days, we have our usual Sunday tradition of a mid-afternoon espresso, served in espresso cups we bought on our honeymoon in Rome.
|with its little spoon!|
Last happy: homemade bread!
|love all those holes!|
Thanks for inspiring me, Stephanie!
