Over the Weekend: Maine in December

To those of you who might be reading from Pittsburgh, I think it's pretty clear these photos weren't taken this past weekend. No, just a few left over shots from our trip home to Maine back in December. On the morning of our departure, my mom and I took the dogs down to the pond, which was a perfectly frozen sheet of ice. It would have been perfect for ice skating if there had been time. We were lucky enough to have a perfectly snowy holiday- and a very snowy drive home- which makes me thankful for all-wheel drive and new tires. Each time we visit, it's a little harder to leave, especially when we know there's a 15 hour drive ahead of us.

This past weekend was the exact opposite of these snowy pictures, it was 70 degrees! I actually saw people walking around in shorts and summer dresses. Unseasonal weather freaks me out, and I was completely unproductive. How was your weekend?

It's simply gorgeous. We got some snow here in Kansas City, but not a whole lot. We don't expect more snow until February. Ugh. I miss it. You look lovely, too :)

Ooh such a lovely scenery! I always love how much snow can soften a landscape and make it more magical. There has been some snow this weekend here in Belgium (Europe) but a very tiny bit, not even near as much as in those photo's. So jealous!

70 degrees! I wish that's how it was here. It is about 2 degrees here and super icy. These pictures are beautiful. -Heidi

I am freezing just looking at the pictures of the snow! I am so spoiled in Cali... it is sunny and clear right now (but trust me, it's in the 30s!)
