There’s nothing exciting as the first real snow of the season, when you wake up and see everything covered in a sparkling blanket of white. Although Rhode Island experienced its first real snowfall while I was in DC, this was my first snow of the year! Although I found myself home alone, I was desperate to capture the snow’s beauty, so, with help of self timer and an old shelf, I took these images. I even brought my dog, Delila, out to play in the snow which I usually wouldn’t do because of her tendency to drag me. Fortunately, she was on her best behavior! Delila and I matched with red and green plaid around our necks. I wore a scarf, and she wore a collar. Because it was about twenty-six degrees out, I kept warm in leggings, bean boots and a sweater as Delila and I went dashing through the snow.
