SNOW DAY.

12.08.2013













we woke up this morning to the ground covered with an inch or two of snow. we've been crossing our fingers for this day for weeks and it finally happened. we bundled up and hit the road in search of more snow. we decided to visit the cozy town of hannibal, missouri. we stopped along the way at the mark twain lake when we realized it was frozen over. we don't get many frozen bodies of water in the south, so it was entertaining until my fingers were frozen. once we made it into town, the snow started falling again. first, we stopped into java jive on main street for a warm drink. we sat by the window and watched the streets turn white. we window shopped, read historic markers and walked up and down the snowy sidewalk. these are the kind of days you write home about...


all photos taken with an iphone.

  1. Love love love! Do you remember HOW you edited the top photo of you? I am assuming VSCO but what filter? :) I love how crisp & bright it is.

    1. It was either the S1 or 2 and barely adjusting the sharpness and saturation. That white wall helps a lot though! It's the only good thing in this town :)
