IT'S SNOWING


All you need to know is that IT SNOWED.
But if you want to know how I feel about it, read on.
On Wednesday night before The White House went to sleep, 
I got a phone call from the school district informing us that 
 a storm was coming, and school would be canceled on Thursday.
You'd have thought the Nielson family won the lottery.
We were thrilled!
After that news, we Hygge-ed it up; lit candles, 
turned on the fireplace, pulled out the blankets
and watched a movie in the living room excited
to be able to sleep-in.
When we woke up it was a little cloudy, but nothing threatening.  
Around lunchtime, we noticed light flurries, 
then gradually it started snowing and it didn't stop.
I just received another phone call from the school district letting
us know that school is canceled AGAIN for Friday!  
I made a batch of liquid gold (hot chocolate), lit more candles around the 
living room, and as I type this we are on our second movie
(Return to Me & The Count of Monte Cristo),
and the snow is still coming down!

Spiritual Enlightenment: Nurturing Marriage
"Marriage brings greater possibilities for happiness than does 
any other human relationship. Yet some married couples fall 
short of their full potential. They let their romance become rusty,
 take each other for granted, allow other interests or clouds of
 neglect to obscure the vision of what their marriage really could be.
Marriages would be happier if nurtured more carefully."
