Reflections Of Paris {Part I}

I don’t know why I never shared with you all of my photos from Paris. After all of my photos from the South of France maybe I felt like you had seen enough and needed a break.

Call Me a Blabber Mouth {but there IS a giveaway}

I have so much to tell all of you this morning. We had an amazing snow storm this weekend (2ft) and we all had so much fun playing in the snow. We went sledding a few times, yummy hot cocoa was made and the boys made an awesome snow fort. I love being home so being snowed in for a day or two doesn’t matter to me.
