And Since We’ve No Place To Go…


I’ve watched her wish for it while staring dreamily out her bedroom window.

But Mom, why won’t it ever snow here? Why? It’s winter. Winter means snow.

I’ve heard her bemoan sunny Southern California for its palm trees and sunshine, begging for just a tiny bit of white powder.

I’ve even caught her wishing on the first evening star.

It's still coming down! #SNOCAL

Last night, she and her brother threw snowballs at each other in their own yard.

Tonight I just might have her wish for a few other things.


  1. That is so priceless! I hope you enjoy the snow!!!!!

  2. You gave me the most delicious chills.

    Your family always makes me smile. =)

  4. That is awesome! I”m so glad your children got to experience this. We live in Arizona and never get snow either. My five year old daughter yearns for it with the same passion your daughter seems too. FINALLY, this past week it snowed about 30 minutes away from us, so we hopped in the car and spend the afternoon playing in the snow. It was wonderful!

  5. Happy Snow Day! But keep it right now. I don’t have time for snow.

  6. Wasn’t it amazing? What a great way to start the year. I hope this is a sign of magical things to come.

  7. Magic is around you Erin, and it’s doing wonderful things! Enjoy the magic. Stick out your tongue and capture some more! Happy New Year.

  8. You can keep the snow if you want. It doesn’t have to be on loan.

  9. Of course her wish came true. She’s pure of heart.
