Snowflakes for an NYC snow day

Snow day!

Work and school are canceled, transit has many delays, and flights are canceled.  Many stores and restaurants are also not opening today. Here in New York City, almost 20 inches was originally expected (has been slightly downgraded).  Being from Minnesota, it’s new to me to have things shut down seemingly just for snow.  However, most people around the city heavily rely on public transportation to get around and with the sleet, it’s pretty slippery.


The other day I came across an amazing Instagram feed with beautiful snowflake pictures.  This man captures snowflakes, runs to his microscope, and takes captures a photograph.  The photographs are phenomenal: see for yourself!

The details are so incredible,   I thought of these photos as we sat in a diner this morning, our snow day tradition to venture out and enjoy some pancakes and bacon while we watch the snow fall outside.  The snow was really starting to accumulate since the snowflakes were gigantic!

Spring or Winter Fashion?

As we are swinging into spring fashion, it’s hard to imagine wearing anything like that today.  It’s the coldest and snowiest week we have had this winter.  It’s cozy on my couch and reminds me of the long Minnesota winters.  It takes me back to playing in the snow as a kid and how I wish I had my snow pants so I could run to Central Park and sled like a child.

I have been looking at your blogs filled with tank tops and sunglasses, but I just can’t get into it today.  For any of you here on the East Coast you may feel a bit more inspired by snowflakes today.  I found some pretty jewelry that matches the above Instagram account, and a few other items.  Maybe it’s time to stock up some cute things for next winter!
