I grew up in Muskegon, Michigan just off the lake. In Muskegon we got a ton of snow in the winter! When I was little (I was a little shorty pants and I guess still am) the piles along the sidewalks were much taller than I was. They towered over me (as you might remember me mentioning before)! My love affair with snow started back then and is still very strong today.

This week we had a fairly nice-sized snow storm and I was so happy. I love a day when I don’t have to take the car out for anything and can just venture out everywhere on foot. I love a day where big snowflakes fall all day long. It’s so cheerful to me (as long as I don’t have to travel, of course)!

As an adult my very favorite part of a snow day has shifted from sunny afternoon playtime to the dark nighttime. The hours after the snow has finished and it has grown still outside. That’s when I usually head outside for an adventure.

I love the textures and sounds of fresh snow. The way it pulls on the branches. The t-t-t-t-sound of my boots driving into it as I walk. I love climbing the little mountains of it and stamping my feet in where no one else has.

And I love the quiet. (This tree spoke to me. I stood and stared for many minutes.)

The snow has already melted mostly and is certainly not on the trees anymore. I can’t wait for the next snow day so I can go out again after dark welcoming the fresh snow and tipping my cap to the winter.

Things have been busy around here as we get 3191 Quarterly Issue No. 10 ready for press (it will ship to subscribers mid-February and be available in our shop February 22nd). This week, I wanted to share some behind-the-scenes images and sneak peeks into what I think is going to be a really fun issue. As always, MAV and I will have recipes, stories from our travels and adventures, tips and advice, a creative project, and many, many photos to share. I am really excited to share it with you!

I am excited, too, to get back into a rhythm of my posts here. I have so many ideas and recipes that I haven’t been able to share here just yet, and MAV and I have many new plans to help enrich this space. I do love the immediacy and connection that blogging brings as well as the surprise of MAV’s post next to mine. We only occasionally plan or share with each other what are posts are going to be. We began our relationship based on serendipity, and it remains one of our guiding principles today.


While Issue No. 10, won’t be in the shop until next month, we do still have copies of issues No. 8 and No. 9 while supplies last. Issue No. 8 will be disappearing soon. It is one of my personal favorites and includes the instructions for branch weaving among many other great stories and recipes.
