A Snowy Farmhouse Christmas


This past winter, our little farm was blanketed with over a foot of snow for several weeks. And, I have to confess, I loved it! Truth is, I’m still a bit like a schoolgirl when it starts to snow each year. I’m delighted by the thought of staying home together, going sledding, hot cocoa around the fire, and being hunkered down as a family. There’s something magical about those Mother Nature imposed stay-cations.

Last weekend, the clouds spit out a few (and I do mean a “few”) flakes, while I crossed my fingers for a winter wonderland. It hasn’t happened yet, and I’m still very much dreaming of a white Christmas.

In the meantime, I decided to round up a collection of my favorite snowy and wintertime farmhouses. I hope this compilation will bring you those same childhood feelings you remember having while waiting for a snow day!

“Thank goodness for the first snow, it was a reminder–no matter how old

were willing to believe they still mattered.”

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses
them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white
quilt; and perhaps it says, “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer
comes again.”

“Snow was falling,
so much like stars
filling the dark trees
that one could easily imagine
its reason for being was nothing more
than prettiness.”
