Enjoying The First Snowfall Of Winter

We had our first measurable snowfall of the season yesterday.  I must confess, I’m not a big fan of our Wisconsin winters, but I do enjoy the beauty of fresh snowfall.  Waking up this morning to the sight of snow turning  the dull brown landscape into a sea of white made me smile full of gratitude at how lucky we are to experience all four seasons here.
