the first snowing

 I was so excited to wake up this morning - I knew I'd be waking up to snow!
 Geese flying in formation.
One of my favorite old Boston churches.
This hat was a present from my dear friend Kat. Thank you, Kat!!
The pond has been frozen over for a few weeks, but I think the snow laying across it made people feel comfortable to walk on the ice.
I've never walked on the pond before. It was neat to be in a space I've only looked at from the grass or bridge.
This is a little island the swans hang out on in the spring.
View from the island.

This is where my Nana and her friends got together in the 40s! I love walking by it.
 The snow day was concluded with seeing The Artist, which I really loved.
I hope you all had a beautiful day, as well! Did anyone else have snow? What did you do?
xo, Amanda

Thank you, Casey! I hope you get to walk on the pond, too. :) There should be plenty of time left! Just make sure it's solid first. ;)
