A white birthday

{ Please note– This post was intended to go up on my birthday, which was two months ago. And since the weather has been spectacular and yesterday was 50 degrees, I thought it would be a perfect time to share pictures of a snow-covered New England. Also, more snow’s coming…}

On the 29th of December, I went to bed with 12 inches of snow covering the ground, with more coming down from the heavens. I woke up the next morning, and jumped right out of bed. I slipped on my jeans, my coat, and my bean boots and grabbed my camera. I ran out into the winter wonderland with my loyal (and energetic), snow-loving body guard.

I walked around the tree line and took in the beauty. God had gifted us with such a beautiful morning. Especially because it was my birthday!

I had a white christmas, which included sledding with my sisters on our long, winding hill up the back path. And now I can say I had a white birthday too. I’m a photographer who loves winter, so what better way to spend my 14th birthday than taking pictures and sledding again with my sisters?

And of course, I have pictures to show off from that morning.

I’m so thankful I got to spend my birthday with the ones I love, doing the things I love.

Have you had any snow this year?

    Okay, I am very jealous, because we haven’t gotten snow since I was six. XD It’s so fresh and white and beautiful!
    Happy late birthday! Sounds like it was amazing. Your pictures are so pretty, and Bixby is adorable. I just want to squeeze him! 😛

    Ooh, pretty pictures, Hayley! Bix is so cute. 😀 And no, unfortunately we haven’t really gotten a good snow this year, which is really unusual for us. Strange.

    While that snow looks beautiful, I don’t know if this Florida girl could handle it. I lived in North Carolina for a while and had my fill of snow there lol

    You have captured some very beautiful winter shots! Bixby is a beautiful furry friend and cohort. We’ve gotten enough snow to last til next year. Living in Maine, we always get more than our fair share! lol
