I know this is late but better late than never! Valentines Day has always been an easy going holiday for us. We refuse to subject ourselves to the crowds and eat out! Instead, we created our own tradition where we cook spaghetti carbonara together and serve it on glittery heart shaped plates.
While enjoying dinner, we watched one of our favorite shows: The Walking Dead. The show is filmed in our area, and we have even caught them filming earlier seasons next to where we live!
I got some red roses for Stefanie along with two Amiibos of her favorite Animal Crossing characters!
It’s so rare that we get snow in Georgia, that when it does happen it’s a huge deal! Everyone clears out the grocery store for bread, milk and eggs because in the South, snow means FRENCH TOAST! Since we bought our home, all the snow threats have never produced much. Of course, looking at Pinterest I see lots of cute Christmas card inspirations with a snow covered house. This was going to be my chance! I had bought a “Merry Christmas” banner a year ago just for this moment. After a whole night of snow, we hardly got anything. It was super disappointing waking up and the yard wasn’t even covered, but that morning the snow started picking up. By 11, everything was mostly covered! After eating brunch we got ready to take photos in the snow. We tried 😂
Our Home covered from the ‘blizzard’
We decided to have some photo fun anyways
We put up the tripod and took a walk in the park next to our neighborhood. At this point the snow was already starting to melt, but we wanted to enjoy it while it lasted.
Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year. We love to go all out decorating. For me, it makes winter tolerable (although this year we had such a warm Christmas the only thing we missed was the sun)! When we came back from Augusta, we rested and opened up gifts. Stefanie ended up getting pretty sick over the Christmas break, but she got better for the New Year.
Check out the photos I took at my mothers place. Now you see where I get it from. Looks absolutely beautiful.
Christmas Eve, we ended up spending time with Adam’s parents, seeing Star Wars and opening gifts. We didn’t take photos but enjoyed ourselves. Christmas morning we opened gifts with Stefanie’s family. Antonio even got a Wii U!
After a few days at my parents, the budgies decided to check out the tree and started perching on it all on their own
Spring is starting up in Georgia. I am so happy to welcome the warm weather. Winter is by far my least favorite season, if it wasn’t for the Holidays I don’t know how I would survive the cold dark months. Ended up taking some shots of the flowering trees in my yard
We had a blast of some winter weather this week. Even though we didn’t get as much as expected, Georgia really prepared well. Luckily, I was able to telecommute, and enjoyed this rare snowfall from home. We had mostly sleet and icy rain, but it made for some nice photos. I’m glad we kept our power.
