Silver Lining: A Year of Silver Lining (to my new readers)

A Year of Silver Lining (to my new readers)

I've noticed lots of new readers around here (woot woot!). If you're new to Silver Lining: welcome! I hope you'll stay awhile. Here's the basic version of what you need to know if you want to stick around this blog.

This is me: 

And here's a glimpse of what it's like on this blog, year-round.

I mean, summer break is great. Sure, warm weather. Of course I'll take a pool day if an opportunity comes up. But snow cones?? Now that's where it's at. (Slurpees make acceptable substitutes for the winter months).

Basically, a large portion of each autumn day is spent crunching leaves. Don't pretend you haven't crossed the road specifically to reach a pile of crunchy leaves before. Bonus points if you get a gutter full of them. Also, fall fashion is the best fashion.

The bad part about snow is the terrible snowy commutes I had to drive before the snow plows were out last winter. The good part about snow is sledding! Fun fact: my husband first started dating me after we went sledding together. He got a concussion from going off a jump, and that concussion must have knocked all the sense out of him because he wanted to date me after that, the poor sucker. Also, we like to go to ice castles.

Somehow, I end up doing most of my traveling in the spring. I guess it's a good time to get away from the drippy coldness to somewhere warmer? Other good things about spring include my 5th grade students going crazy, warmer weather, and Cadbury eggs during Easter season. Especially the Cadbury eggs :)

I hope you'll stick around here for a while! Check out the About Me page if you actually want to know what this blog is about :) 

Oh, and here's a picture of my darling new baby girl. We're obsessed with her around here, so if you're not into cuteness overloads, this blog may not be your thing.

P.S. If you also have a blog, leave me a link in the comments and I'd love to check it out!
Happy weekend.
