Montana love, January edition

So I did a little  Things I Will Miss post before I left California, and I did a Reasons I Love My New Home post after we'd been here a while. More surprising may be that I am still pretty happy here in the dead of winter.

I love ...

  • Sunshine on fresh snow
  • Clear air
  • Footprints
  • Gas fireplaces (all fireplaces actually)
  • Wool socks
  • BOGS
  • Starry sky
  • Rosy-cheeked, red-nosed little kids
  • Flannel sheets
  • Cautious drivers
  • Cozy crocheted hats
  • White Christmas
  • Sledding
  • Silvery-looking snowy pines on the mountainsides
  • Hot cocoa
  • Herbal tea
  • Bad-weather camaraderie and community spirit
  • 45 degrees and you feel like abandoning your jacket
  • The walk and driveway all shoveled 
  • The cry of one bird in winter silence
I will alert you now, there will be no post similar to this one in April or May when it is still snowing.
