J: January Joys

Fact: It does not snow where I’m from. Some winters we like to think that frost is the same thing as snow but in the back of our Texan minds, we know it’s not.

Fact: It does snow where I live now. When we first moved here in 2006, I HATED the cold. It would make me grumpy, and that’s not helpful for a brand new marriage. It took about two years but I can genuinely say that I enjoy cold weather now. Reason one being that I learned what in the world to do with a scarf. No, it’s not just a cute accessory but it actually serves a purpose. They just don’t teach you things like that in Texas. To be precise, I think my friend Ashley learned how to wear a scarf from a J Crew catalogue and taught me. Thanks Ashley! Thanks J Crew!

Here are some snow pictures of our good times this winter:

Snow in our parking lot. We spelled out last name if you can't tell.

Teehee, snow here is not so snowy Beck. I love how our conceptions of weather are pretty much opposite. Maybe we were brought to KY to learn to love the same climate!

Snow in Texas? No. There's no snow here. But every so often it gets a little icey and you and your friends can go "ice skating" in the streets, right Kevin? I'll forever remember ice skating with you on Lackland!
Hurry up, August 15th!

Hey Peeks!!! Good to see your snowy pics- I'm a little jealous. The most exciting weather we get is Hurricane Season- and that's not really a "good" thing... but it's still exciting.

I had no idea you were posting again. I hadn't dropped by in awhile. I've got some catching up to do. I'm thankful to not be wearing a huge coat right now. Yea summer!
