I'm not one of those gloating-about-the-weather Californians.  I know you're cold out there!  I've spent many a bundled winter hiking over icy plow mounds and stepping into slush-covered puddles, and I still don't think you should move here just for the weather.  Snowy winters can be so beautiful, and sometimes (but not always) I miss them.

I was thinking about you out there in the blizzards when I noticed this tangerine peel on my breakfast table, the perfect symbol for the Californian daydreaming about winter:


  1. Cute : )

  2. gorgeous! and a perfect reminder to look for the surprises...the art...and the magic in the mundane. xo

  3. intricate beauty in the everyday. love

  4. wow, how ever did the tangerine fibres end up looking like that?! nature can be so full of miraculous wonders sometimes (:

  5. Hahaha! I live in Canada and truly appreciate your post! :)I truly love my country, our fall is gorgeous and I agree winter is truly beautiful. February however is harder to handle. But it is nice to think that while I day dream about sunny days someone in California is thinking about chilly days

  6. LOL! Well, I am one of those "gloating-about-the-weather Californians"! :) That made me smile. I'm from Kansas, so I appreciate the weather here so much.
