Favorite {Photo} Friday #26

Lately my Favorite {Photo} Friday posts have been more like Favorite {Photo and Story} Friday, but tonight I've just got a few minutes so we'll switch it up and be long on photos and short on chatter. :)

For Thanksgiving weekend in 2005 Jason and I headed up to Lake Bled, Slovenia with my church group. While we were there it started to snow.

Here you can see a few little flakes, it just started to snow while we were out for a walk. By the way, two things: first, I adore the coat I'm wearing in this photo. I bought it in South Korea in January 2004 when it was freezing cold. I almost didn't buy it because it was like $65, which seems like a LOT when everything else there cost like $5. It may be the best $65 I ever spent, I love it. Second, looking at this photo just now reminded me of something. Jason had just given me diamond earrings for my birthday that year (and also as a sort of "Thank God we made it through Korea" present, ha ha!) and they have the screw-backs. I was in the habit of checking them every so often, much like a newly engaged woman looks at her ring constantly. :) We got back to the room to change for dinner and when I felt my earrings, the back of one was gone. I was so shocked that I had to go check in the mirror. With all the times I'd taken my scarf on and off, I still can't believe that the back of my earring came off but the earring stayed in my ear! Whew! I totally forgot about that until just now.

Anyway, it kept snowing and snowing, and after dinner a bunch of the group went outside for a snowball fight while my girlfriends and I stayed warm and dry and fortified with Irish Coffees in the bar. Overnight it kept snowing and snowing and snowing more. When we went for the same walk we'd gone on the day before we saw things slightly differently!

Care to sit down on a bench by the lake? :P

Here is a great comparison. The first photo is from November 26, 3:49 p.m.

The next photo is from November 27, 3:00 p.m. What a difference a day makes!

Have a great weekend!
