Colorado almost always throws us a blizzard that halts time in the late season. Even better when that storm shuts everything down on a weekend allowing us to forget about the to-do lists and soak it all in.
Board games, a roaring fire, hot chocolate and soup, Star Wars movies, and inspired photo creativity.
Everyone helping everyone. A neighbor showing up to plow our driveway as our boys are out plowing another's. A teenager's car in a ditch and a neighbor just in time to pull him out. A kitchen full of the smells of baked pumpkin bread and happy girls eager to trudge through snow to express gratitude for helping hands and folks we adore.
And for a little while .... the world just stands still.
