My boyfriend is, no doubt, a keeper. For one, he finds videos like this and sends them to me. Watch this for a smile and an “awwwwww.”

P.S. There are countless other reasons why I think I’ll keep him too. 😉

Cuddly Lions to Make the Winterz Better

My county has officially issued a “DISASTER DECLARATION.” It’s a disaster here in Glenside, PA. Snowpocalypse, winterzilla, snowmageddon, polar vortexathon–call it what you will. Trees are down, roads are blocked, and most homes are out of power. Fortunately my power is back on, but earlier this week when I was power-less, I drove (slowly and carefully) to a nearby Starbucks on a quest for coffee and wifi. I pulled into the small parking lot where cars seemed to be entering in and out. I’m kicking myself for not snapping a pic of what I saw next. I drove by the front door, peering in for signs of life, when my eye caught a piece of paper taped to the front door. In large black lettering it just said one word: “nope.” Though I was disappointed for the lack of java in my life, I couldn’t help but appreciate the humor.

Glenside is on the mend, and I hear that most places should be up and running again by Sunday at the latest. Meanwhile, we’re due another storm this weekend. And to that I say:

“Weather” by anonymous

Whether the weather be fine,
Or whether the weather be not,
Whether the weather be cold,
Or whether the weather be hot,
We’ll weather the weather
Whatever the weather,
Whether we like it or not!

By God’s sweet grace, indeed, we’ll weather the weather.

Also, here’s a cute cuddly lion video to make the winterz better. I think this would be both the best and scariest greeting ever.

Go to Sleep and Dream of…

Yesterday was the first snow of the season! And it’s supposed to snow again tomorrow! Let’s revel in it and enjoy the snow, beloveds!

And these kittys seem to be having fun

But if it’s too chilly ‘fer ya you’ve got two options-either huddle for warmth or do a little dance

And though outside it’s looking like this

I’m inside bundled in books

But that’s okay because I like these books, and I’ve got

hot chocolate


cozy blankets

And if you’re lacking snow in your part of the world, you can always get some through books like one


Or through favorite Christmas movies like this one

And with that, I’ll leave you with a happy lil’ snow owl
