I would suggest listening to this song: Dark Eyes, by Iron and Wine & Calexico, covered for the I'm Not There soundtrack. I believe it's my favorite on that album!
We were snowed in this week, and I enjoyed it. Now all the trees are lined with ice and it glistens in the sun and when backlit by gaslight streetlamps.
The garland was one my mother wore on her wedding day in St. Thomas, saved for me although missing lots of its dried flowers and adding some ribbons instead. My hair may look short here but it's actually shoulder length! Just Heidi braided. I won't go back to short for years, I miss being able to do amazing braided hair styles =/ I'm on my way.
