Walking in a Winter Wonderland

We love snow! It was so exciting every time the weather man called for snow back in Charlotte. This was partly because it meant that we might not have to go to work the next day and partly because snow just makes everything beautiful. There is something about snow that makes me want to smile when I see it. It has been snowing just about every day since we returned home and it is predicted to keep snowing steadily until this Saturday.

Today we did a lot of walking in the snow as we took a bus and then trekked the rest of the way to church this morning. Although it was 18 degrees we did not mind since the scenery was so pretty. As we were leaving a friend’s home this evening we walked into a heavy snowfall. I am so grateful to be living in an area of the world that sees a lot of snow each year. I have been told that I will not feel the same way in January. We shall see.

Our walk back home from the Haptbahnhof (train station).

A quick stop into the Christmas market to grab a few candied nuts

One of my favorite eateries covered in snow
