This picture was taken a few years ago, this is the road where I live, it's a beautiful, magical wood. Walking through here was so peaceful, beautiful and uplifting...this year, after a very hard winter last year, we're celebrating not having had any snow yet...we're lucky, we know...I celebrate living here, both with and without the snow!
