First Snowfall

It was a scene straight from a Hallmark Christmas card,
so I captured it on my camera.

I woke this morning to my first snowfall here on the farm.
It was stunningly beautiful.  I could have stood in one spot and looked at it for hours.
But I had chores to do, so I quick grabbed my camera and snapped away.

The old barn peeking through the snowy trees.

As I walk around, my hands and feet are getting cold.

So I came inside to warm up with a cup of hot chocolate.

Let's stay connected, follow me on 


I will be linking up with Feathered Nest Friday at French Country Cottage


  1. The start of many more happy "firsts" to come...and you didn't have to shovel! It would make me want to put up the Christmas lights.....

  2. What a lovely sight to wake up too! The barn is screaming for Christmas lights don't you think? Stay warm and the hot chocolate looks yummy! Can't wait to see how you decorate.

  3. It looks so pretty Diane. What a spot you have found! Yes, little white lights are needed on the trees and shrubs and candles in the windows. :) How about a big wreath on the barn too! :) Enjoy.

  4. Hi Diane. This is the first time I have seen your blog and your home is beautiful and charming and life on the farm intrigues me, so I am following you by e-mail. What a beautiful first snow in your lovely home..Happy Thursday and I hope you will visit the Cottage when you can..Judy

  5. How pretty that is !!!! We had a dusting today but didn't stick, more to come this week.....

  6. Diane - as much as I don't like snow, it sure looks pretty! We didn't get any snow accumulation here in Lasalle, but we did have some flurries - I am praying that winter this year is not like last year!!

  12. Oh, how beautiful! Since we have no snow here, I love looking at photos of snow!

  13. Oh my goodness, it is probably to late for this year, but I would put that first photo on my next years Christmas card. Your farm is gorgeous. What a wonderful place to live and raise a family.
