Coffee and Snow

20160202_164011(0)

It’s snowing here in beautiful northern Michigan. The most wonderful feeling is that of enjoying a nice hot cup of coffee while curled up in a blanket, watching the snow come down. It’s such a peaceful feeling. The coziness of it. Or perhaps snow is an excuse to slow down. Nature’s way of saying it’s time to relax, sleep more, save your energy for the crazy busy days of summer. For me winter is a time of reflection as well as relaxation.

So here I am. A stay at home mom with 2 kids, a husband and a small farm to take care of, all at the age of 28. If you would have asked 10 years ago if this is what I would have imagined my life to be I would have answered definitely not! But time has a funny way of changing things. So here I am. I quit my good paying job to stay home to take care of everything. But really, it’s a lot more than just taking care of things. I chose to quit my job so I could live. You see, I firmly believe that life is an adventure that is meant to be lived. And if I was holed up in a factory, I would have missed watching this amazing sunset with my family.
