Mother Nature has given me one of the best birthday presents I could’ve asked for. It’s a beautiful, big blanket of snow. Snow is the most wonderful thing- it makes everything look exceedingly pretty, it makes schools close and its presence makes the whole town a playpark. It also gives you a fabulous excuse, should you ever feel you need one, to drink Chai tea in enormous red polka dot teacups. I have the biggest smile on my face.
