A New Tradition
Today the snow fell in the valley. Sure, it was only a flake or two, and it didn't stick, but I could see it! This means it is time to break out the champagne glasses with snowflakes on them, and toast the first snow of the season. This is actually the first year we'll be attempting this tradition, but I like it. It works for a variety of reasons.
One, there are only two champagne glasses with snowflakes (the result of a secret work party gift exchange thing- I hope whoever got my re gifted picture frame thing was happy...).
Two, there are only two of us. How many occasions are the Beardocrat and I really going to have to use two fancy snowflake glasses?
Three, I am recently a winter convert. Having never particularly enjoyed the entire Winter Season (minus Christmas, of course, who can hate Christmas) I have acquired an appreciation of all things cold.
Four, we have that bottle of sparkling Peach juice just waiting for us to be underwhelmed by its 'meh' flavor.
Today is the day. Happy Winter, folks!
