The Best Day of My Life

The first winter storm has finally arrived. For some people, it can mean travel delays, a long commute to work, school or home. The snowy weather brings out homeowners to shovel and clear sidewalks, and driveways. For others, it can mean experiencing a wide variety of winter activities - skating, skiing, snow boarding and playing hockey. For J.P, it can only mean one thing - pure bliss. The morning news of the first snowfall sent J.P to the window, where he happily declared, "Mommy, this is the best day of my life!" This little boy continues to warm my heart. I stood behind him, my hands resting on his shoulders. We gazed out the window, and admired the view. I couldn't help but remember my own childhood. This picture captured exactly how I truly felt.

Oh, to be a kid again!


  1. Awwwwww how sweet!! How much snow did you get? We got about 15 inches in 24 hours!

  2. I love the feeling that this post and picture convey. It's lovely.
