snow much fun!




“There is nothing in the world more beautiful than the forest clothed to its very hollows in snow. It is the still ecstasy of nature, wherein every spray, every blade of grass, every spire of reed, every intricacy of twig, is clad with radiance.”
- William Sharp 

Snow covered New York City yesterday. As much as I hate strongly dislike snow, I have to admit that the city looks magical in white. The blizzard caused a well-celebrated holiday which made me, and all the New Yorkers (especially students), rejoice. Basically, the reason why the classes and (some) work are cancelled is to keep us stay indoors, right? But what the heck, not even the 12-inch snow could stop us from having a little fun. We went to the park just across the block to frolic and play the Eskimo way.
I always got hit on the face. FYI, the snow tastes weird. Or was it a snow?
I thought of every strategy to get even.
Apparently, it didn't work.
Look at the snow ball my brother made. When he threw it at me, it's like receiving a power punch from Muhammad Ali.
No matter how I tried to hit my target, I just don't know how to carry out precision.
Snowflakes are kisses sent from heaven.
Snowed under.
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. . . somewhere else!
When it snows, you have two choices: shovel or make snow angels.
Meet Mr. Nerdy. My brother and I made him. Snowmen aren't forever, but their memories are.
Starlight, star bright. Protect our snowman overnight.
It takes the young at heart to make a snowman from a bunch of snowflakes.
A snowman is love and laughter all rolled up into one.
There's nothing like warm hearts on a snowy day.




And oh, I am so shocked to hear about Alexander McQueen's untimely death.

You can read the story here.
What a loss. He will be missed.

Awww you are such an adorable snow bunny! :)

Nina said...

Hi Betz!

How genius that you wore that bright white jacket with snow as your background ... you just stood out?! Everyone else wears black or dark colors in the winter, right?

I'm sooooooo sad about Alexander McQueen ... he was so into thinking outside of the box ... love people like that ... great, great loss for the fashion industry!

And yes, Roey is the cute, chubby teenaged boy in a white sports Tee! He's so clueless, he hasn't still figured out that our outfits are always a tandem, ha, ha, ha!

vitaMinn style said...

So saddened by this shocking news too... he's such a great talent.

On a lighter note, I enjoyed looking at your snow photos here! Seems the entire family had so much fun. =)

Vinda Sonata said...

seems like you have so much fun, betz! i love seeing snow. i even wish i could experience it. how does it feel being in snowy weather? :)

i love your style, always lookin' so chic, betz! mr.nerdy is cute, too.

mcQueen will surely be missed, too. he's very talented. my biggest condolences.

ANN said...

These pictures look like so much fun! I wish it snowed where I live. RIP Alexander McQueen :(

E said...

What a fun look for the snow! I love how you rocked the jean shorts with the boots!

Closet Full of Nothing said...
