On me: Cardigan (almost identical version here for $29) // Striped Tee // Boots // Jeans // Hat (old Zara) // Athena's snowsuit
Ok, don't get all crazy and think I risked my baby's life for these pictures, especially you Chicago people. I swear winters here are so mild even if they look like we are living in a blizzard. Ever since we moved here our love of winter has grown because in Utah you can actually ENJOY winter and snow. In fact, it's one of the most popular reasons to live here. Last winter we were starting slow, mostly on my account, easing our way into new snow activities. We started with tubing and then with a pretty intense snowshoeing hike. Maybe it was just intense for me because I was newly pregnant and everything was harder then!
This year the snow is fun on a whole new level because we get to take Athena out on short jaunts through it. The last week has been colder, but two weeks ago when this was taken, it wasn't that bad at all. Notice all I'm wearing is a long sleeve tissue tee and a cardigan and I swear I was comfortable. Athena is all bundled up in her little penguin snowsuit that as of a few days ago she outgrew (STOP GROWING) but her new one from my friend Kylee is even cuter!
We are leaving for Chicago today and it will be Athena's first plane ride. No one is more nervous than I am. My anxiety is not so much about her, it's more about how to pack properly for the plane, and a week's worth of bopping around the city and Wisconsin for a week! I know there are stores along the way to pick up anything forgotten, I just get really stressed in situations like this where I have little control over the outcome of things. Luckily Andrew keeps me calm and he'll be right by our side.
