Greetings from snowy Jackson Hole!

Hey y'all! I made it safely out here and I am having a great time. I've come to realize that I could definitely move here, even without Target and good thrift stores because it is just so beautiful here that I'd gladly sacrifice those things in exchange for seeing these views every day!

My flights were both on time yesterday, which is a miracle and I arrived out here about 12:30. Will and I went and grabbed a late lunch at one of our favorite restaurants here, Sidewinders, and then we came back to the room so I could take a much needed nap. At that point I had been awake for 30-something hours!! We ran to the grocery store last night and came back and sat in front of the fireplace and watched the snow fall.

Speaking of snow, we're supposed to get another 10-18 inches today and I am so in love! I've never seen so much snow before in my life and this place looks like a total winter wonderland. This is the best Christmas EVER!! We're heading out in a bit to run some errands and then we may drive up to the Grand Teton Park today and do a little sight seeing. I'm hoping to see a lot of animals and have lots of photos to share tonight! Here's a picture from our hotel room window yesterday of the slopes over at Snow King Resort. Add another foot (yes, foot!!) of snow and that's what it looks like today!

Hope you all had a great weekend, full of holiday festivities and time with your families!

Sounds wonderful! It was 72 degrees here over the weekend! But, today it is down in the 40's!
I would love to see the snow - from inside - I just can't handle the cold anymore!

It sounds like a wonderful snowy Christmas! I hope you are doing well - I feel terrible for not coming around and saying hello for awhile. Things have been pretty crazy on my end. Hope you are doing well and enjoying a lovely Christmas! I hope you will still stop by and say hello. :)
