Snow Dogs

The winter storm blew through and let us unscathed with much less snow and ice than predicted and the sun made an appearance yesterday to help melt some of it away.

A Winter Woodland Table with Pfaltzgraff Chateau Dinnerware and Snowflake Pizzelles

Especially in the early morning when the light is just starting…
