Greetings from CHI-BERIA.
Before my husband and I got married, we talked about where we would live if opportunities arose…
22 year old me who never had lived outside of Alabama said, “I’ll live anywhere. Except where it snows.”
Funny how things turned out.
Almost half of our twenty two years of marriage have been spent living in Utah, Colorado, Connecticut, Canada and now Chicago.
Guess what all of those fabulous places have in common? heehee.
And as much as I complain and want to jump off the nearest bridge during January and February every year….
I love it.
Here’s a little peek around our house lately…
We have had more sub zero days this month than I care to count.
This pic of a sign by our driveway was taken a few weeks ago…it’s long since been buried.
Step outside the door and your face feels like it will freeze OFF.
Poor Riley sinks up to her belly when she walks…making it very challenging to do her business…
The lock inside our front door…yes…that’s frost. Inside the house.
This is one of our kitchen windows. It used to be double paned…but one broke due to an unfortunate run-in last summer with a baseball. So now it’s all nice and frosty.
I kinda like it.
The cottage has a collection of what we like to call deathsicles. They are like 3 feet long. Beware. 😉
So does my car.
Driving involves alternating white-knuckling and butt-cheek clenching. Not fun.
I’m feeling a little stir crazy.
Emphasis on crazy.
So between packing up our house for the renovation and freezing my buns off…
I’ve kept myself occupied with a photoshoot of a certain soon-to-be birthday girl.
I’ll be back tomorrow with some pics that will bring a smile to your face and warm your heart.
