#1,506 Snow Day.

It’s snowing! In Mississippi! This happens… Basically never. The last time was 2008 and Ben and I weren’t even married yet. The state declared it an emergency, schools and businesses ALL closed, doctor’s offices closed, it’s the end of the world around here. And everyone is as excited as if we were little children. I went to work to photograph some new designs and had a bird’s eye view of downtown while it was falling down.

Look at how lovely Laurel is in the snow!

Chevy and Baker have never seen snow and they couldn’t get enough of it. They were eating it, rolling in it, digging in it and jumping in it all day long. They’re gonna sleep good tonight.










The church was closed, Jim and Mal worked from home, Josh worked from home, so Ben made a big cast iron kettle of chili out on the porch over an open flame. Dinner at our house amounted to some gross stories about mayonnaise and Lucy trying her hardest to talk to us all with pig grunts.







My house is happiest on nights like these.

  1. I am glad to hear that you are enjoying the same winter that us Northerners are having, except that it was -17 this morning before wind chill!

  2. How pretty your town looks with a dusting of snow. It was -12 when I left for work this morning. It is starting to get old here in Chicago. Your house sure does look cozy!

  3. Laurel looks so magical covered in snow! Glad that you're all making the most of it and having some fun – including the dogs. Your house looks so lovely (as always).

    I really wish ours was just a light snow. The drifts are higher than my car now and it's -22F with the wind chill. We're having a real Canadian winter this year!

  4. How pretty Laurel looks (and seriously, isn't that the prettiest town name ever?)

    We are up to our eyes in snow and the temperatures are below zero and have been all week. Brrrrr….

    Your house sure looks cozy.

  5. I bet your pups absolutely love the snow!! It thankfully missed us here in Tulsa. We had gorgeous 60 degree weather on Sunday and then Monday we were down to 20 degrees. The weather can't ever make up its mind in our lovely state. I'm not gonna lie though, I wouldn't be sad to not have winters or snow. I always tell Shaun if we ever move, we are going further south and not north. I've had my fair share of winters and I'm ready for a warmer climate, even if it does come with crippling humidity. I could tough that out, frizzy hair and all. 😉

  6. I'm feeling sorry for you folks who have heavy snow all winter—I can see where it would become a burden after a while, but we're having so much fun with it since it only happens once in a blue moon!
