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
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!
