Winter came late, but dang it's cold!
It usually starts to get pretty cold by the end of November, and snow usually picks up by that time and heavy snow starts by mid to late December - that is, at least, in my experience being here in Wisconsin the last eight years. I had a family photo shoot scheduled for December 10th last year, and I had to reschedule it because surprisingly there was no snow.
The snow came mid-January, and oh the boys are happy! Well, Ein is happy but I don't know about Hans. He does not like the rain or the cold, but ironically he loves swimming and the snow. Weird pup.
It's that most wonderful time of the year....
I definitely love this season, and this year we celebrated Yule as a family, away from home, in a small, cozy cabin by the Brule River right on the border of Wisconsin and Michigan.
Ein, our dear Snappagator, is growing up so fast! I honestly don't know how many times I'm going to say that throughout the course of his life but probably until he's three or four, or until the next puppy. Hans is a big pup so while he'll always be my puppy, it does feel like he's grown up already.
Ein, on the other hand, is smol and is expected to remain smol. But what does his small paws love? Just like big brother Hans, he also loves the snow!
Our boys are definitely loving it! Hans loves to play in snow but he gets enough of it after a few minutes. Granted his fur isn't that thick (and he's so big it's hard to find a good coat), Ein is fluffy and welp, looks like he's a snow dog at heart.
Sometimes city life can get really busy. I mean, I don't really go out especially with everything that's going on and with myself working from home but the city is the city. I don't live in a big city. Oshkosh is pretty much a medium sized city, no sky scrapers or crazy traffic (just every once in a while). There is one thing that is very much treasured by Wisconsinites. It's what they (we) call "Up North".
Up North is the place in the northern part of the state where people go to be with nature. Some people rent places to stay, some go hiking or camping, many go fishing, and many actually have their own land. Luckily for us, we have our own piece of nature to escape to. It's definitely one of my favorite places to go hike or simply just sit on the porch and take photographs.
Hey, it's me!
I've always loved to write. Not saying I'm good at it, but hey this is the story of my life!
