Sunshine, blue sky and golden aspen.

The weather has been incredible this month. Gorgeous blue sky almost every day. Crisp mornings and evenings and pleasantly warm afternoons.

This is Santa Fe weather. Perfect.

I would be so happy if it stayed like this all winter long, but alas, I am sure the colder weather will arrive all too soon. I don't mind the snow, but I am not a fan of cold temperatures. And every year, it seems to bother me more. If our house was warm, the cold might not get to me so much, but I do not like having to seriously bundle up just to be comfortable in the house.

There isn't much we can do about it. We live in an old house, we have old heaters and they don't distribute the heat well. And space heaters don't help all that much either. We've replaced all the old windows over the past few years, but even that doesn't seem to make a difference. The heat rises and quickly goes through the ceiling and uninsulated roof.  

Maybe if I had winter clothes that I actually like I wouldn't complain so much. Haha.

But there is sunshine. There is always sunshine. And that is what keeps me going during the winter. Even on the coldest of days, we usually see the sun. And for that I am grateful.


  1. i'm still holding onto the wintery things from NY/NJ if only because it took me a long while to amass good gear and while we feel very settled here in CA, i know that life is unpredictable and i never know when i'll need that good, (and the other 3), coat and sweater. :)

    Your photos are gorg.

  2. I'm finally catching up to your posts - the words and the photos are so inspiring and lovely (I love the header too!). I may steal the 'little things known about me' idea for a post, I loved reading yours!
