Grey Ceiling on the Earth

Your Winter by Sister Hazel on Grooveshark


Winter came back this weekend.

The sky turned dark and rain drizzled incessantly.
The temperature dropped. Everything was grey.



As I reintroduced my water-resistant trench coat into my wardrobe and wrapped yet another scarf around my neck this weekend, shivering as we walked along the cold sidewalks of The Corner to stop by all of our favorite places and then return home to sit on the couch under a blanket, I was reminded that these sorts of weekends are, in fact, my favorites.

I mean, at least until Spring comes along.


"How beautiful a street is in winter! It is at once revealed and obscured. Here vaguely one can trace symmetrical straight avenues of doors and windows; here under the lamps are floating islands of pale light through which pass quickly bright men and women, who, for all their poverty and shabbiness, wear a certain look of unreality, an air of triumph, as if they had given life the slip, so that life, deceived of her prey, blunders on without them." --Street Haunting, Virginia Woolf

  1. Beautiful quote by Virginia Woolf.

    And that kind of weekend sounds perfect to me, as well! :)

  4. Sounds like a pretty good weekend - we got snow (at last) in London, and there is nothing better than lying on the sofa in front of the electric heater and watching some trashy TV...

  5. Beautiful photos! Your hair is beautiful. I have spring fever already, I'm ready to trade my wool coats for sundresses and am definitely ready for some warm sunshine.

  8. I'm so jealous. I would love a little bit of a "real winter" right now. Currently, it's almost 70 and we haven't really had a cool winter!
