Chris and I moved into our first home yesterday. Fortunately it was a pretty easy day, as we had been moving over items during the last two weeks of cleaning and painting projects. We also had my sister help out with moving larger items, (I'm not much of a heavy lifter.)
It was a fun, exciting day to bring our items into the home, and to see the house fill with our character. Then this morning, my husband woke me up and told me I should look out the bedroom window. I was surprised to see the first snowfall of the year... and like all first snowfalls, it was beautiful.
After some shoveling, I ran outside to take photos of our backyard, which looked almost magical. I'm not a huge lover of snow, but the first snowfall in northern Illinois is always a sight.
