As a kid, there was nothing more exciting than the potential snow day.
An entire day to sled with friends, build snow men and drink hot chocolate while hanging out by the fireplace. As an adult, you realized that there weren’t snow days and a large amount of snow only meant scary driving, driveway scooping and really really cold houses.
Well guess what friends? This girl works for someone who believes in snow days again. The world is a much more beautiful place. An amazing, beautiful, snow filled place. So this morning I woke up to a text letting me know that I could roll over and go back to sleep. Talk about the best text ever. This might have been it. Then I woke up to a little love in my favorite coffee mug and a cookie or two. Because, really, what snow day isn’t complete with some cookies for breakfast?!
And although I’m no longer five years old, when it snows, you’d better believe that I want to go play in it (after throwing in laundry, doing the dishes and cleaning the kitchen). And so does the dog who was built for this weather.
I mean, look at her.
And the best part of the snow day is that everyone in Nebraska was talking about the upcoming storm… and then got no snow. And this is how much snow we got. So much snow.
But the best part? By the time I went to climb in my car – this is what it looks like:
I love the sun here. Love. Love. Love the sun. Makes it easy to drive around the city when all the snow on the roads has already melted by noon!
So thank you new job for the amazing day off to play in the snow, catch up on life and spend a little time on the couch working while catching up on The Mindy Project.
Perfect day. Hope all of you had a great one as well!
