can spring be far behind?"

Maybe it is all the snow, maybe it is the bitter cold. But this is a hard winter for us gardeners....

I love that prayer!

Hey Joey,

Last night I DID break out the vodka, put another log on the fire and enjoyed your Snow Storm Martini. MMMMMMM Good and Cozy!!

Here is a gift for you to cozy up to:

Snow Angel

Rim two martini glasses with coarse sugar
Fill shaker halfway with ice and add 2 ozs. each of chocolate vodka, white creme de cacao, Irish liqueur and l oz orange liqueur. Shake well, strain into prepared glasses and top with chocolate curls. Enjoy!

Stay warm;)

Joey, I usually think of this quote from Shelley around February, but with the fierce winter weather we have had so far this December, I think we need to remember it now!

Love all your photos; Michigan does indeed look like a picture postcard. We have had more ice than snow lately. I wouldn't mind a little snow for Christmas, but most of all I hope everyone can travel to their destinations for Christmas.
