Last night's snow fell gently, coating each branch and berry in a sparkling, sugar cookie blanket of white. Though the flowers and leaves have disappeared, winter's backdrop unveils a skeletal beauty that summer disguises with its splendor.
The first snowflakes of the season fell this afternoon, bringing with them a familiar mix of emotions. Like boarding the ferry after saying goodbye to a romance that was never meant to last, you know beautiful days lie ahead but you're still not quite ready to let go.
