Tis the Season!

As I type the snow is falling and the wind is howling! The first real storm of the year is always so exciting. The rush at the grocery store the day before, the lines at the gas station full of plow trucks, and of course the buzz from everyone canceling/making plans. To hear any complaints about the weather this early in the season is quite obnoxious - I mean, HELLO, this is Maine after all.
The calm after the storm is also a nice feeling, as the sun shines on the fresh new snow it creates a clean and sparkly look. One of my favorite things about Winter in Maine is the beauty and quiet after a fresh snow. With Christmas around the corner a fresh blanket of snow is welcome, but in my opinion, if we are celebrating Winter in Maine snow is welcome through February (too bad it will still snow through April though right!?).

New Years Eve WEDDING

I can't even wait to go to my first New Years Eve wedding! For some reason I love celebrating this holiday....preferably with my nearest and dearest friends, so attending a friend's wedding on this holiday seems perfect!

PLUS from the picture, you can tell I have a real love affair with Champagne....
