I think that little smattering of fairy dust goes rather nicely with the glitter of the ice and snow, don't you?

I want to leave you with one last quote from this weekend. It comes from Ashley, who perfectly stated my favorite thing about winter:
"My favorite thing about winter is the feeling. It's hard to explain, but there is something really special about standing out in the snow, while it's snowing. Especially those really big flakes you can catch on your tongue that fall softly but thickly. And, if it happens to be a beautiful, crisp night with the stars popping out... Wonderful. Love it! :)"
*all winners selected using Random.org. Congrats, everyone!
