Ever since Puff and I have been together, the month of January has always been pretty packed on the work front for both of us. (Yeah, now I'm kinda missing that chaos! ::sigh::) But we always seemed to find some time to sneak away on a pretty day to a museum exhibit or to the mountains. One time we even off-roaded in our little convertible to see an iced-over waterfall!
I digress... this picture was from the Caesar's Head overlook in the mountains of South Carolina. We've been there several times before, and the view is always changing. This was one particular Sunday morning in January a few years back where we had the roads to ourselves. There wasn't any snow on the ground yet (that was coming) but it just felt and looked like winter. While I've never been a particular fan of the season, I can find some comfort in knowing that I have Puff by my side to commisserate with on those gloomy, ugly days.
Although seeing as we were able to have the top down on the convertible for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's, I don't think many of my friends and family up North have much pity for us. At least not when it comes to weather.
