Iced In – in Omaha

We’re iced in.

Not snowed in, but iced in. (Sorta*)

Last Friday night local meteorologists informed us to batten down the hatches! Big ice storm a’comin’! Stock up on supplies then get outta the way!

Total disclosure: Since I moved here to our fabulous building, I love a good “hide-at-home” winter weather day. Why? Because as condo owners, we don’t have to worry about snow removal, ice removal, trees getting damaged by winter weather, something or other about cracking foundations etc., etc. We can just hunker down, cozy in and watch the winter scene from our big windows.

Happy Holidays from Omaha!

Greetings and Happy Holidays! This is our first married Christmas. My new mother-in-law is the sweetest little woman on the planet and an amazing baker. One of her family favorites is her traditional Southern tea cakes. She grew up in Louisiana and her tea cakes are the real deal.
