Vacation Planning

Today as the snow was softly falling into fluffy, flaky, freezing piles I decided to plan a vacation. On this imaginary vacation I decided to go to one of my all time favorite places, Greece. 


I mean, look at the Ionian Sea. How amazingly blue are the waters? 


Then, there is the caldera, and the blue topped churches of Santorini. 


Did I mention all the random dogs as well?

Greece is full of amazing people, one of the friendliest I've found. Plus they have a rich, well preserved history. 


I mean they have the Parthenon


The Old Temple of Athena


The Athena Pronaia Santuary


and amazing sunsets. 
They also have a Mediterranean temperature. 
Until then I will be here, shoveling my way through the day.







Making crazy snow creatures

  1. What a fun exercise for a chilly winter day, luckily spring is near and soon enough we'll be wishing for a cozy sweater and cup of cocoa all over again!
