I'm in Michigan, Enjoying all the SNOW!

I wish I could show you how much SNOW is up here! There isn't a speck of bare ground to be found anywhere a snowplow has not been! My brothers and I said the word "Wow" about 3 million times in our drive up here.... marveling at the fantastic sight of all that glittery white!

(you have to understand, my two little brothers and I grew up in Southern Florida about 15 minutes from the beach, and we currently live in mid-Georgia, so we've never seen more snow than just a light dusting.)

I'm on my Aunt's computer now... And I haven't downloaded any pictures yet, so you'll just have to wait until at least tomorrow. :D

Really though, the amount of snow up here is absolutely incredible. This morning I was at the house of my lovely friend Kate, in Indiana, and the temperature was a balmy MINUS FIVE DEGREES FARENHEIT. (-5)!!!

I have pictures of Kate's adorable goats and sheep that I'll have to share with you later as well. :) We stopped at Kate's house on our way up to Michigan, as we had spent the night in a hotel outside of Indianapolis.

This evening my family and my aunt Cheryl and uncle Dave and maternal grandparents and I went out for dinner at "The Grand Coney", where I ordered some delicious though rather spicy chili and fries. We had a great time!

My little brother just told me it's bedtime, so I have to go for now. :)

Blessings!
Julia

  1. Ya I used to live it MI, and Indiana :-)
    Right now were I live it's -22.
    But I'm used to all the snow in MI. I loved it, we lived a few minutes for the lake and we would always drive by it on Sudays after church. It was so pretty in winter!
    Have a safe trip back!

  3. That's Great Julia! I don't get to see much snow either. I live in TX, so usually we don't see ANY snow. But, I love snow too!

  4. Wow! Sounds like a lot of snow!!! I haven't seen too much (Delaware doesn't have really big snow falls typically, just a few inches) which is a good thing for me, because I don't like shoveling (or cold!)! =;) Yikes! Minus 5 degrees! Brrrrrrr! Can't wait to see your pictures! Glad you all could enjoy all the snow while you visited!

    Blessings!

  5. Oh! Can't wait to see pictures! I've never been to Michigan. In fact the farthest I've been North would be Ohio. Have fun!

  6. I will admit, I am glad our snow has melted!!

    Hope you have a great time up there! Being where there is snow is a big culture shock when you aren't around it!

  7. Julia,

    you have to come see 'AS one of Seven.' I think I like it, but I need someone to confirm it. (I added another column) It looks totally different than before.

    Please come and check it out!

  12. How funny! I was just at your blog not a week ago and then I realized that YOU were were the Julia that was coming up from GA yesterday after you left... Shows you how much I visit my sisters' blogs. LOL.

    It was lovely to meet you and your family. I'm glad you are enjoying all the snow. I would love to send you some of ours, but it is kind of hard to ship. :P But you are welcome to come up anytime and enjoy it.

    Sorry I didn't talk much... it was kind of awkward. I didn't know you were coming until the night before, and well, you know how that goes. (Sorry I am shy in person, but if you can't look me in the face, then I can talk on the first meeting. :)

    But I do hope we can talk more through comments and blogging together. :) I actually found you off a friend's blog - http://hannahbearsblog.blogspot.com
    she had your icon on her sidebar, and your earring giveaway thing.

    Love,
    Rachel

  13. Hello Julia! Yes, the snow is very beautiful, I cannot image a winter without all the snow.

    I'm so glad you got to see Kate again - she is such a lovely and sweet friend! It amazes me how much her and Breezy are alike. Btw, I'm Breezy's sister, Emily Rose. :D I have dropped by your blog now and then, but have not commented until now. *tsk, tsk*

    If my memory serves me right, you will be going to Crossroads? Our family will be going, too! We are so excited!. ;) Also, we will be going to the Father and Daughter Retreat, I believe Breezy said that you would be going. :D The retreat will be a dream come true!

    Have a wonderful week!

  16. Hey there Julia! I am so glad you stopped by and commented. It was very nice meeting you in person too... it was fun meeting new blogger, altho I didn't know exactly who you were at the time. :) I think Iw ill have to add a page on my blog of all the bloggers I've met (like my sisters have) and put you on it. :)

    I'm better at communicating if I don't have to directly talk to anyone... it's weird, the first time you meet. Well, I shall take that as a compliment, being added to your blog roll. Speaking of blog rolls, here is a yummy recipe for one you can do to get started - http://dixonhomestead.com/rachel/?p=168 I thought I would be funny.

    I hope you have a blessed day also... and once again, I am very glad we got to meet you. In my opinion, you can't have too many friends to converse with. :)
    Love,
    Rachel
