2010 Comes to an End... With Snow!

We are bringing 2010 to an end in such an amazing and pretty way for our desert city that we live in! It has snowed in El Paso! It snowed for over 24 hours, however, it did not leave much to be seen. It rarely sticks out here. Nonetheless, it was a beautiful site, especially seeing the snow covered mountains. In some weird way, it can be prettier here than on the east coast. Maybe it is because El Paso doesn’t look so….. dull. The reason I state this, well, El Paso is full desert! Kevin, the kids, and I are all use to greenery…. Grass and trees. Anyhow, the snow left the city looking pretty and white for almost one whole day! Haha, go ahead, I know some of you find this more than funny that we get excited over a tiny amount of snow. You would think I would not find this as exciting after spending a couple years in Germany and the blizzards we had on a regular basis. But, I do. I am even more excited when the temps start to warm up!

Seeing snow in some way makes it feel as though 2011 will be a better year. It feels almost as though it is a fresh start and a step away from this past year. This next year will be full of many changes, all for the better, I hope. We are all very excited about what the future has in store and cannot wait to share as it all falls into place!

Early in the day before the snow, real hazy looking

And the snow begins....

The day after the snow. I love the way the mountains look!

Mountains in the distant. This is across from our neighborhood.

I love this picture of the mountains!

We hope everyone had a terrific 2010 and hope 2011 is the best year yet to come!
