I fully understand now that it's not Minnesota cold.  After following Breanna Rose, Kate Arands and Emily Claire on instagram, winter up north is what you see in the movies.  I know for certain if I lived up there, I'd never leave the house.  After living in the low desert (Phoenix) for many years, I grew accustomed to sixty degree winters where a light sweater and thin booties were all you needed to get by.  Now I live in the high desert (Santa Fe) where winter is frigid but bearable.  I still don't want to go outside on some days but I do enjoy sipping hot tea in front of the fire, the way the snow looks when it first falls, long weekend brunches, wearing super cozy sweaters, a quick soak now and then and most of all--spending ski days with B.

How is your winter going thus far?  I'd love to know.

I think it's super cool that you still have snow in Santa Fe! I've never been to New Mexico (desperate to go, though) and I always thought it was all desert, nothing else. Your photos look super cozy!

It snows in SF from about November to March, which people do find hard to believe. I must say, I'm done with it after January and long for springtime to come.

The southern part of the state is all desert so I wouldn't recommend visiting there but I think you and your wonderful photography skills would love Santa Fe :) Plus we'd get to meet in person.
