So, back to that snow..
We're not famous for snow round here. we don't get a lot. But two years ago we were hit by a series of heavy, heavy blizzards: the worst in living memory. It was crunchy underfoot as The Accountant and I set out for the city centre and some last minute Christmas shopping; so it wasn't long before we were holed up in Starbucks and not shopping at all. With our first sip, the snow started to fall again; and, in the half hour we sat there, the streets emptied, the shoppers disappeared and the storm settled in.
We knew we had to get home fast. But, before we left, I took one simple photo with my phone. We were almost completely on our own, in the middle of the city, and we could barely see our hands in front of our faces. It was magical.

And now I've scrapbooked it. Thanks to the Frosty festivities! I'm getting ready to check out the rest of the frosty goings on while you head straight to Jennifer's. Remember, there is a gorgeous prize of Basic Grey and Carta Bella to be won and a lot to see along the way...
