Snow Covered Branches

Thank you SO much for your kind response to my last post, On Marrying Young. I was really nervous to post it, but I'm happy that there were others that could relate. Blogging is pretty neat.

Post Sunday Mass donuts from our fancy donut shop, I exuberantly requested that we stop on campus. The snow was swirling around, and I knew how beautiful it was going to see the January gray trees decorated with winter white. So Chris, my cold despising husband, watched over the bambino in the car while I took Ryan, the toilet user in training, to our favorite spot on campus. 

When I was a student, I always smiled behind my scarf when I was walking home from procrastinating at CoMo with snow covering all of campus. The snow made the night silent yet cozy. 

It was the same last Sunday. School is still out and the Basilica is under renovations so no one was on campus. It was a cozy yet silent stroll.

Until I heard the unmistakable, "Uh - oh!"


Don't eat yellow snow, kids.
