January is in full swing here in the Big Apple! The snow has been falling for days now.

And yes, I do love the quiet beauty of snow, everything is sparkling and magical to me. 

The winter season brings with it many things: winter sniffles, dry skin, winter doldrums.

End Quote:

The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event.  You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found?  ~J.B. Priestley

Stay cozy and warm and if you have to venture out into the world, drive safe.
