Let It Snow...

We finally have our first snow in New York City! I was getting a little worried... It had already snowed in Dallas... and even in Phoenix! We'd yet to have a solid "stick" on the ground here in the Big Apple. Lucky for us, the wait is over! This is what our terrace looks like this afternoon at around 2:

And this is what it looks like right now:

Wonderful, no?! The snow has been coming down gently, yet constantly, all evening. We've had a long day of package shipping (the holiday frenzy in a Manhattan post office? Everything you think it would be, and so much more), grocery shopping, first fire in the fireplace stoking, lasagna baking, chocolate-covered pretzel making, and the pièce de résistance- a web call-in to my closest friends' annual Holiday party in Scottsdale. Though my husband and I showed up in PJs, and I was donning my favorite $10 trapper hat from the corner street vendor, the magic of Skype helped us to enjoy a small piece of the party I wish I was able to attend most. Though I "see" my gal pals each day on Twitter, and read their blogs here and here each day, I'm so thankful to see their gorgeous, smiling faces in real time! Thanks to my lovely bridesmaid Jess for letting us crash her fab party!

The Mr. and I are now settling in for a warm night of red wine and Netflix On Demand in front of the fireplace. Sometimes life can be tough in this city, and sometimes the stress can be very tough to handle. But you know what? It's nights like this that make me appreciate the magic of New York City. We may not have a lot, but what we have is Oh. So. Good.

Happy Holidays!

Woo hoo! (Although I am super-paranoid that Trevor's not going to get out of LGA tomorrow, and he's already been gone five days!)

By the way, your patio gives me hope for possibly having to find an apartment in New York at some point. I need my outdoor personal space!

It was SO good to talk to you, although I wish you could've been there in person! Miss you so much. And your pic of the snow? Makes me wish I were there to enjoy it. With the fire going and a MM in hand, natch. Muah!
