Really Mother Nature??

Apparently Mother Nature has not gotten the memo that it's now officially spring and therefore the temperatures in the 30's, snowy mix and morning frost on my car should be long gone by now but alas that's not the case. In fact I woke up Sunday morning to a decent dusting of snow..yes SNOW at the end of March. And I live in Virginia which is technically the south, not North Dakota. Sigh.

On a good note the cold weather has given us an excuse to test out our fireplace. Behold a picture of our first fire in our fireplace last night. We have a wood burning fireplace which Kristian was super excited about. Personally I was quite happy with our old gas fireplace that turned on at the flip of a switch but I guess this is a bit more authentic and definitely cozy.

I'm just glad we didn't see any snow over here at the beach. The only thing we received was rain and sleet.

And I totally agree the 70 and 80 degree weather needs to hurry up and get here ASAP!
