Sometime back in the ’50’s someone said out little city was, “Hometown USA.” We like to scoff, wordplay being a passion of ours but sometimes it really fits.
I had a date with Briar on Tuesday. We went, at her request, to the coffee shop for some, “lonely time.” We had cocoa with whipped cream, which she declared was, “mmm, delicious sour cream!” We shared banana bread, “That sweet crumbly stuff with the nuts.” And I had coffee, “for before relaxing.” It was bliss.
And then came the first snowfall. Cue the music. Perfection.
I wish that I could have more hours spent simply enjoying the perfection that is a snowy day in a small town as seen with my first baby beside me. Perhaps it wouldn’t be as sweet if it happened all the time. Luckily I have little snippets like this to help me remember the joy in being right here.
A storybook moment for sure.
It's certainly not your run-of-the-mill-town (hehe!), Glens Falls most definitely has got a bit of George Baily's Bedford Falls all about it:)
awww what a wonderful moment to share with your little one!
TOO precious. I love the "lonely time" idea 🙂
What a beautiful way to spend the day….It is always nice to enjoy the first snow. You know before it has been 4 months of subzero temps and ice storms. My town is called "Hometown USA".
.. and seen without her sisters, Briar doesn't look quite so big or quite so grown. Thank heaven …
see what I mean about your beautiful life?
I think it is exactly the fact that those times are rare that they are so precious. It doesn't matter the frequency. It's rejuvenating for both mom and child.
Lonely time is sparse these days. Thank you for reminding me of the importance of getting out and catching a snowflake now and then . . .
What a wonderful date! That photo is adorable. Moments like that surely make all of the tough times worth it!
What an adorable hat on an adorable little girl.
Sounds like,quite possibly, the best date ever! What a lovely moment. Thanks for sharing 🙂
That sounds like the most perfect day!
So jealous. We just don't get anything like that in Florida to celebrate a winter moment. Such a great moment.
I love this blog.
That is such a beautiful town – and a lovely day out, too. I took my Boy out for hot chocolate with whipped cream yesterday!
Ah! this reminds me of my childhood and 'lonely time' with my mom and snow. I miss snow.I can't wait to have these experiences w/ my little girl. Such a sweet post…
And they all lived happily ever after. 🙂
What a beautiful storybook life you have.
Amazing, the perfection, in the small moments, isn't it?
So, so sweet.
