Oh my God, this is the best thing ever.
White Winter Wonderland
Winter can be as beautiful as it is frigid – the snow and ice that covers much of the hemisphere in the winter is a informativeness force like no other. We invite you to cuddle up with a cup of tea and your warmest blanket and enjoy some of the most beautiful winter photos out there.
In reality the change of the seasons from winter to summer is one of the best direct indications of the earth’s cosmic movement that we can personally experience. Winter occurs in the Northern hemisphere when the Earth’s northern axis tilts away from the sun. The minute change in distance from, and angle to the sun, creates the drop in general temperature that we experience in the winter. This angle is also the reason why it’s colder the farther up north you go. As the seasons change, you can imagine our beautiful planet slowly rocking back and forth on its axis.
Although some may hate the cold, don’t forget that the winter is a necessary part of our life cycles – these winter landscapes will soon be full of life. Most plants and animals have adapted to the change of seasons in one way or another, and the cold grip of winter allows plants and animals to hibernate or migrate. Some tree seeds, like acorns, will only germinate after they’ve spent the winter on the cold ground.

Red suede shoes! My mommy got me these shoes for my bday from LL Bean-
My dad is from Saco, Maine and when we would go there for summer vacay every year we always went shopping in Freeport which also boasts the best antique malls and an old barn filled to the rafters with comic books! I got my X-men 27 and 29 from 1966 there. I did not want to leave!
Also, my mom told me when I was a tiny girl, I had some red patent mary janes that I had miraculously worn for 2 years. When my mom asked if they were too small I always said no. Upon further examination, I had naturally binded my feet to fit into the shoes with my toes curled under. My tip toes will still curl at the joint 90 degrees which is a great icebreaker at parties! Mom still loves to tell that story and got me these shoes as a funny but I actually looooove them! Theres just something about red shoes! ♡
