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!

You are so funny... but I do not have a full appreciation of Winter yet. ha ha... it wasn't warm long enough.

To Winter!

I'm so glad it's you and not me who's seeing snow. :) Don't get me wrong, I like snow. I don't like the whole season of bitter coldness that comes with it.

*Please don't remind me of this comment later when we move to somewhere icy--which I'm sure is inevitable.*

Just giving you fair warning. Alan and peach juice do not really mix so well...ohh he loves the taste, you might not love him after for awhile.

That's exactly how I feel about sparkling cidar! I couldn't have put it better myself. However, I don't find it worth the taste to even waste a single calorie on the stuff.
