One of the things that pretty much ALWAYS catches me by surprise is the literal overnight change that happens between fall and winter. Every other seasonal change is a bit more gradual, but one day you have this:
The second picture was taken the day of our first snow — since then its changed EVEN MORE because we now have about 4 inches that haven’t melted. It was also taken just a couple short weeks after the first picture!
I suppose one of the reasons that this change is even more dramatic for me is having lived in Houston for 9 years — JP lived there until he married me and we moved to Indiana! I’m not ‘used’ to what most people consider ‘normal’ seasonal changes any more.
I will say though, I am in LOVE with it! (even if it means I have to wear a RIDICULOUS amount of clothes not to freeze my butt off!)
