Most of Kentucky and Tennessee have become winter wonderlands this past week. Although plenty of Northerners are probably laughing at all of us while we freak out, we've had a great week missing school and being forced to stay home with family and friends. There's something so special about snow days. Each year God gives us these days as gifts and I look forward to them each time. I love the anticipation of missing school, the fellowship that flows through the relaxed days and I love being around all of the people I am close with at one time. This cozy kind of fellowship is one of a kind and I look back at these times throughout the whole year and smile. Although not everyone I spent time with are in these pictures, they are all what made this week long snow adventure incredibly special and memorable!
We knew the snow would hit Sunday night so we made the trek to our parents for the night. To our great surprise we ended up having a three day retreat of sorts with some of our closest friends. We got our snow fix with plenty of sledding and we came inside each day ready to warm our mouths with hot chocolate. My mom labored over the stove for some amazing meals just for us. The boys played video games and the girls cuddled up to watch movies each night. It was a great time that I will cherish forever.
Later that week, (yes we had a whole week off of college - unreal) we transported ourselves to The Farmer's parents' home where we played card games, ate great food and embraced fellowship. It was such a great time being able to spend a whole week with both sides of our family. I love my in-laws and I am not ashamed to say that they are a huge part of my social life!
This snow week has been an amazing and refreshing time. I'm ready to get back to real life and embrace the work I need to do, but I'm thankful I was able to enjoy this week with family and friends!
