I looked out the window yesterday and saw an unfamiliar substance coating the sidewalks, trees and yards. More of it has accumulated since then and my kids are delirious with excitement. Their mood has rubbed off on me.
Of course, this strange substance required different clothes than I normally wear. What I was able to cobble together for myself and my children wasn't particularly attractive, but you know what? That strange substance makes everything look a little magical--kind of like candle light.
