I spent the weekend at my parents’ house in Maine. Didn’t do much. Hung out with my Mom, worked around the house a little, drove to the beach (unusually low and high tides) and also saw a bunch of houses being built that I can’t afford. 🙂 Despite the fact that it was cold and rainy with a few flurries, it was GORGEOUS!

There is something to be said for the tranquility and the simple beauty that you get in the winter. As someone who lives in the city you tend to notice more space, the slower pace and the starkness to the daily grind!
