Just before going to bed last night I asked Michael to keep the blinds open.
"Why?" he asked.
"Because I want to see the snow!"
I had such a hard time sleeping too. Maybe it was all of the excitement, because I have never seen snow fall since I was like three or four years old, so it kind of meant a big deal!
I woke up around 6:30 a.m., the usual time I get up for work. I opened my eyes, and the sky was pink and orange, but lo and behold there was snow! Being the responsible person I am, I called work to see what time the office was opening (two hours later due to the snow) before launching myself outside to see it!
|View from the balcony, looking down into the street.|
"It's snowing, honey! It's snowing, honey!" I exclaimed as I threw on whatever would cover and keep me warm. "I have to go and see!"
"Be careful," he mumbled as he rolled onto his other side, continuing to sleep.
On my way down the elevator, I called my mom, waking her up to share the news. Then went outside to walk in it and take a ton of photos!
|Stepping out into it! Look at that early morning sky!|
|7 am, just got out of bed, yet happy as a clam!|
|Covering the grass.|
|Some snow in my hair after my walk.|
I came back into the apartment so spritely and excited then proceeded to wake Michael by showing him my photos. It was so hard to sit still, so I went back out again to the top deck and took even more photos. The sky finally turned blue as it woke up and voila! Seattle all dressed up in white!
|Untouched snow on the rooftop deck.|
|Getting my footprints in.|
|The whole skyline, with the Space Needle's lighted Christmas tree on the far right.|
It was a good morning for me and a great way to start my Friday! I came back to my apartment, taking in the scene before making pancakes for breakfast!
|Can't get enough of it! View from the balcony window.|
|Such in great spirits that I made blueberry gluten free pancakes topped with sliced bananas and agave nectar.|
|Blair watching snow for the first time!|
|Michael snapped this one of me when I wasn't looking.|
Happy Friday Everyone!
