It snowed in Seattle yesterday, and as I took my afternoon run through the largest snowflakes I’ve seen in quite some time, I couldn’t help reminiscing about my childhood as a kid back in Colorado…winter blizzards that kept us home from school; turning our flat driveway into a make believe ice skating rink, while using my Keds as skates; snow angels and bright red noses; big, BIG winter coats, sledding down the big hill behind my grammie and grandpa’s house; and snow clumps clinging to our doggies fur coats.
Winter is something that is not absent from the streets of Seattle, just, less “wintery” on most days I guess. This is my 4th winter in Seattle and although we get glimpses of snow and temperatures low enough to see your breath, I still find myself missing Colorado winters…big blustery winters.
So as I peer outside this morning, clinging to the last patches of snow on the grass of my neighbors lawn, I cant help but imagine wintery nuptials. So, as a means to keep my winter daydreaming at bay, I created an inspiration board of my ideal winter wedding wonderland.
