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 you became and how much you’d seen, things could still be new if you were willing to believe they still mattered.” –Candace Bushnell
“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.”
