Midwestern Moments: Snowy Adventures with Little Bean

As far as snow goes, it has been a pretty dry winter. We’ve had a few blustery days here and there, but nothing close to the full-on snow storms that I first experienced last year. This week was no disappointment, however, and our grounds are thoroughly covered with a carpet of snow. It makes for precarious driving, but it’s pretty spectacular to look at.

Naturally, after a snow day stuck indoors, the little bean and I took off for a much-needed adventure. Snow days can only be so fun for a wee one who thrives off of the social energy she derives from school. We spent roughly 20 minutes running around the park near our house, which is about 15 minutes too long for me. I’m more the sit-in-your-pjs-and-stare-out-the-window kind of gal, but what my little bean wants, my little bean gets! Over and over, she delighted in crunching through piles of snow. She’s a good egg, that one.  I couldn’t say no.

I will say that our 100 year-old house looks far better blanketed in snow than it does nearly any other time of the year. February is a close second to May in terms of our house’s looks, when painted flowers crop up to flank its sides, but that’s a far way off. So, this winter wonderland will just have to do.

Here are a few photos from our wintery adventure!
