Some Sister Survival

….And a long time no blog post, am I right? Well then! Hello from the bitter streets of Minneapolis. Where the winter weather is truly not for the faint of heart. Or for those with terrible circulation (i.e. Darebear). The high today is THREE. With a wind chill of negative TWENTY-FIVE for good measure. And how are we surviving these bitter winter days? First by taking a few necessary sister selfies before our baby musketeer leaves us to finish her last (her LAST!) college semester.

Just living up to all of our millennial expectations, I guess.  And who could pass up pictures of this beautiful Minnesota winter?

Our father in the background is just not having any of it. [insert hysterical laughing emoji]


Trees lined with snow just get my heart going (see below).

Visions of Olaf and Elsa and icicles shooting out of our palms were definitely dancing in our heads. We spent about fifteen chilly minutes at the park to see the new snow, and I’ll confess right here that I sure don’t move as gracefully as Elsa does in the snowy weather. It’s more of a romping + stomping motion with some physically and mentally tense shuffling across any potentially icy surface. But who cares about what you look like in the snow if you can hit that high note in “Let It Go” while you’re driving in your car and basically screaming it at the top of your lungs all the while mentally preparing yourself for a life without vocal chords because you just KNOW you likely tore something and should stop at the nearby gas station for a bottled water.


Of course, after about fifteen minutes in the ridiculous windchill and lack of degrees, we wandered back to my apartment and wrapped ourselves in every blanket we could find. Minnesota winters are sure beautiful. And let me tell ya, they’re even more beautiful from my living room couch. 😉

Hope your staying warm this January!
