January 17th we sweltered through a 112F day... so it was most refreshing and amusing to receive these pics from a dear friend in the States... now if they could only find a way to send TEMPERATURES across the net - we could have done with a bit of each others's weather that day!! Averaged out we would have had a 60F day I think... haha. Hence the title, Beautiful to me... I don't get snow where I live and I don't have to shovel it or walk through it or drive in it or any of the host of other things that make it ugly to people who do... to me it is still miraculous and beautiful :-). Plus it was super fun to make a page using my wintery/snowy feeling items... I don't usually get to use them much!!
