Happy Groundhog Day!

It was 1 year ago today that I wrote my first post— what can I say? Groundhog Day inspires me.

One of my life goals is to make the trek to the little town of Punxsutawney and partake in the festivities, honoring the furry little Phil. If it’s anything like the jolly happenings portrayed in the movie, Groundhog Day, then I want in on it. People dancing around a bonfire, children on their parents’ shoulders, and Frank Yankovic’s Pennsylvania Polka blasting through the town square…. true, small-town fun.

Well this Groundhog Day, on Sunday, 2014, Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow and predicted 6 more weeks of winter! And I sure believe it– it’s been a blustery, snowy, frigid winter with no end in sight! I can’t complain either– I have to admit, I really love the snow. It makes everything look pure and new and fresh. It’s magical. And I secretly like the cold temps because it gives me an excuse to stay cozy at home and hibernate with my little family.

And today is no exception. Mike, Denver, Colette, and I are currently curled up on the couch drinking hot coffee and watching Bill Murray lose his mind while the snow falls outside.

So, Happy Groundhog Day everyone! And if you’re going anywhere for the Superbowl tonight, don’t forget your booties, ’cause it’s cold out there!

Until next time.

Spring Is In The Air

Spring means trying to plant grass in our “front yard”.
