the white stuff.

Greetings from a super snowy Providence! I tried to spare your Instagram feeds with shots of all the snow we had in Rhode Island this weekend, but it doesn't mean I wasn't snapping ;) I've been loving Afterglow {an amazing photo-editing app!} and used it on all of the photos below. Here is a bit of a time lapse look at the snowfall. I took the first photo just before I left for work on Friday morning. The final photo in the sequence is evidence that I couldn't take any more photos out that snow-caked window...

We were some of the lucky ones who kept power throughout the storm. When we woke up on Saturday morning, we were greeted with this amazing winter wonderland.

Though I'm not sure exactly how many inches of snow we got, I am certain we had an amazingly cozy weekend in our little apartment. I got slightly nostalgic for this place which we have called home for nearly four years. This will be our final winter here. Though I'm certainly not complaining about getting in our house later this year, it brings up so many happy memories made here. On the upside, we'll have a lifetime to make new ones once we're in our house...

Don't forget to get your final entries in for my #redpluspink giveaway! It ends just before midnight!
For those of you in New England, be safe on the roads today...I'll see you all back here tomorrow!
Happy Valentine's week--it's worth more than just a day in my book ;) xoxo {av}

  5. Love your positive outlook on leaving your apartment.
    I felt it was such a bittersweet experience, to move, but once we were in our new place- I suddenly didn't miss the tiny apartment with a less than wonderful landlord :)

    ....It's been some kind of crazy out there, hasn't it? Our driveway still has tiny paths dug around it :)
