A Winter Wonderland in the Eternal City

As someone who was born and raised in Southern California, I must admit that I am intrigued by the beauty of snowfall. When I learned that there was a rare snowfall yesterday in Rome (the heaviest they’ve seen in 6 years), I knew I had to share some of the beautiful images of the Eternal City draped in winter white. Doesn’t this historic city look lovely? Just when you thought Rome couldn’t get any more beautiful…

The snow is falling
The traffic is crawling
The world looks all calm and bright
If only for a moment everything looks pure under the freshly fallen snow and the glow emitted by the first snowfall of the season
My mood is happy I hope it lasts all season and throughout the new year too.  –Ann M. Johnson

DREAMING OF A WHITE WINTER

Today marks the first official day of winter and I welcome the season with open arms. There have been dramatic changes in the weather here in Southern California and I am thrilled that I can finally pull out the winter coats from the closet and wrap a scarf around my neck.  It doesn’t snow here at the beach but that doesn’t mean I can’t dream of a white winter…
