weekend+notes | 1.19.24

It has been a week of overdue wintry weather in the Washington, D.C. area with light layers of snow falling softly overnight or over the course of the day.

While there is a heavy focus on decluttering, establishing goals and finding ways to incorporate spring right now, embracing this current season on walks through the forest bundled up in its winter coating are the best part of these increasingly rare snow days. Simply taking in the muffled stillness in the air, the sound of crunchy footsteps amidst the bare trees, the gentle swirls of fluffy flakes piling up on evergreen branches, the animal prints dotting the landscape in crisscrossing patterns and the faint glow of house lanterns in the distance seemingly melting the fluffy snowdrifts sets a blank canvas for exploration and inspiration at the dawn of this new year.

Warm wishes for a wonderful weekend leaning into winter's gift of quiet pause.
