Journey Jots #17

Hello, guys! Hope you are well!

Guess what?! We FINALLY got that snow storm I’ve been wanting! Roughly 5 inches fell last Wednesday into Thursday and BOY was it pretty. My favorite thing is when the snow shimmers like glitter when the sun hits it. SO gorgeous!

Life Lately

Well, it’s Molly’s turn to have some fun in the Florida sun. She took her first plane ride last week and LOVED it!

I don’t think I’ve ever looked, or ever will look, this fab in a swim suit with pink sunnies.

This photo just makes me laugh SO hard…look at her face!

Lastly, I hope you all had a nice Valentine’s Day! I awoke to a lovely surprise of fresh flowers, donuts, and an iced coffee waiting for me in the kitchen. Other than that, we didn’t do much since it was snowing so hard all day.

We stayed in and ate homemade corn chowder, I baked oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, and we watched our favorite movie, Julie and Julia.

  • The snow is so pretty! We had a few big snows in early January. Thankfully it is all melted now. I’m ready for spring! Thank you so much for sharing my DIY Pottery Barn bunny dupe. I so appreciate it. I can’t wait to dig them out of my bins and start decorating for spring soon.

      You are welcome! Me, too!! We have 60 degrees forecasted for next week so this snow won’t last long!

      You are so welcome!
      It IS pretty but it’s not going to last long as we have temps forecasted in the 60’s soon!! It’s just crazy.

  • What a gorgeous way to settle in for Valentine’s Day, Rachel. I can’t get over how much the snow looks just like white glitter – that is so cool! It never snows in Florida so I’m always thankful when you share your snow with us. It’s beautiful. Loved all the pictures of Molly’s first plane ride. She’s such a cutie pie and I’m totally with you on the pink glasses. I feel like I need some now too 🙌Big hugs and thanks so much for sharing my stenciled bee tray, I really appreciate it, CoCo
