Brrrrr…. it’s -15 degrees here at the countryside and it feels cozy and full of christmas spirit.  The trees are covered in layers of snow, the air is still and crisp and it feels like winter wonderland this time of year. During the day we listened to christmas music and enjoyed a hearty bowl of hot soup in the snow. Why is it that soup tastes so much better in the cold outdoors? Lunch was cozy in a picture perfect setting. Dreaming of a white Christmas indeed…
