Jennifer Blake: channeling my inner Gilmore girl

channeling my inner Gilmore girl

November 21, 2016




Lorelai: Wait, close your eyes and breathe. I smell snow. 
Rory: Ah, it's that time of year. 
Lorelai: Can't you smell it? 
Rory: You know, it's like dogs and high-pitched noises. I think it's something only you can smell.

Last night before we went to bed I walked to the door to double triple check the door was locked and as I pulled on the door I peeked out the window and snow was, ever-so-lightly falling. Well re-wind about 5 hours before that I was doing my daily Target wandering and there was no witness, because I was alone (Aaron can only take so many trips to Target) but as I walked into Target I said "hmm smells like snow". We didn't have any in the forecast, so it was the most wonderful surprise!!  I won't lie I felt like Lorelei from Gilmore Girls. The snow continued to fall and when I woke up this morning we had a very small coating on the cars, yard and trees!

There is just something so magical & wonderful about the first snow fall. 

It reminds me that...

There are little simple pleasures in life that just make everything better.
Sitting by a lit tree, with a hot tea or coffee is incredibly relaxing.
It is okay to slow down and not go out every night or constantly be doing something. 
I really am a Gilmore Girl.
The season is long, but will surely past fast, so we need to soak up every day of it.
I should probably get new windshield wipers & a snow brush.
Sweaters, leggings, scarves and Uggs trump all. 
Life is wonderful.  

p.s. T-minus 4 days before Gilmore Girls is out and I might be more excited about that than Thanksgiving! 

Tell me your favorite thing about this season! Is it the snow? The holidays? The fact that it is acceptable to hibernate inside?!
