Let it Snow

It's been a while since I've posted a blog, but I did move to Boston and I've been running around trying to get things unpacked and get myself situated.

Every morning I wake up and am confident that I made the right choice. This feels more like home than Dallas ever did, and I'm so glad that I had the courage to make this move. Every step of the process went seamlessly and further justifies that this was meant to be.

Our apartment is fabulous (well, as fabulous as a house built in the 1850s can be!) and ridiculously huge. We got really lucky on this place. I'll post pictures once we unpack things and it doesn't look so wrecked.

Work is great! The people here are amazing, and the culture reminds me so much of Moroch. The one plus is that I actually work with PR people so there is no explanation necessary of what I'm doing and why it's a good idea. And there are no egos here either.

Ok, now the part that everyone in Texas has been waiting for. On Monday we got our first snow fall of the new year, and I had a few calls from parents and friends asking if I was buried. The area got anywhere from 5-15 inches of snow on Monday; we only got 7. Still, it was enough to cancel everything that day (including work - yay!) so here are the pictures from the snow!

Here's our house. Does this place not remind you of the Bates Motel from Psycho? That's the first thought I had when I pulled up to this place. Our landlord said the same thing. :)

This is Holly; my graduation present, and a great decision considering how well she handles in the snow. I had a great time shoveling her out of the snow on Monday, and realized that I need an ice scraper and snow brush with a longer handles because I can't reach the middle of the roof anymore!

This is our walkway up to the house. This is what I helped shovel with our landlord. I figured it would be great exercise... it was. Who knew snow could be so heavy?

And lastly...

me in my snow outfit, boots and all. Stephen took this picture from our kitchen because he didn't want to put on his winter gear just to take a picture of me in my gear in the snow. I love this new coat. It's very sip-hot-chocolate-at-the ski-lodge and more importantly it's so warm!

So there you have it. I'll be better about blogging more since I'll have tons to blog about on my new adventure. Till then...
