the last bits of winter

I am back from the land of Kansas where I...took a lot of pictures. Maybe a little too many. But that's besides the point. I am home and I am blogging again.

To me, the seasons are clearly defined. Summer is in June, July and August. Autumn is in September, October and November. Winter is in December, January and February. And spring is in March, April and May. Tomorrow is the last day of February so it only seems right that winter should be finishing up. It's going out with a bang--it snowed on Thursday, blanketing Kansas City in white. All the residents were grumbling about it, having already received an abundance of snow this year, but me? I was happy.

^Those are my boots covered in snow. And yes, I was wearing my pajamas. ^_^

So, my trip was fine. It was fast; full of ice and baskets of food and tears and driving and getting dressed up and laughing with my cousins. Whirlwinds, but now I am home. All that snow and ice was lovely, but here it is a mild 84 degrees (29 degrees Celcius!). Forget spring...I think summer is just around the corner. :) And I'm perfectly fine with that.



  1. Your pictures are really pretty, Starr!!! :D


  2. I love snow!! but I am getting a bit tired of it.

  4. I agree with Charlotte and Mirand,your pictures are sooooo beautiful!But I'm jealous-I haven't had snow for....maybe a month?!

  5. Gorgeous pictures. And the temperatures? It rarely gets that warm on the warmest days of the year here!

  6. I wanted to say that I am so sorry about your grandma. I just lost my great grandma so I can only imagine what you are going through. Also, your way of dealing with your sadness is very productive. I think that your grandma would have been proud. I love your blog and the photos on it so keep up the good work!!!!!!


Hey, you. Be nice.
