Monday morning brought with it a fresh blanket of snow along with very blue and sunny skies. Something about the combination made the day seem a little bit less like a dreadful Monday. Maybe it was the fact that I have a 4 day week followed by 8 days in sunny California with family and friends, or maybe it was the fact that there are some new things happening around these parts and some changes are finally starting to feel a little bit more real (very vague, I know). Or maybe it was winter's way of showing us that it can actually be quite beautiful, even when it feels like darkness is trying to seep in through all the cracks in our lives. Maybe, just maybe.
Whatever the reason, I was very grateful to this particular Monday morning, and for it's almost perfect peacefulness.
