Around here, when it looks like spring is on the way and suddenly a huge wave of snow dashes everyone's hopes, it's called a "heartbreaker snowstorm". And that's pretty much what happened to us this morning.

Yesterday and the day before it was all sunshine and melting snow... there was almost none left.

i... am... chicken whisperer...

the great photographer himself... attacked by chickens. rawr.
it was even so warm yesterday i was walking around in shorts and a tank top.
Yes, yes. Those were the days. It was 69º F yesterday, INCREDIBLE.

This morning?

  1. :( I'm so sorry.

    I've never seen snow in my entire life. I don't know what it smells like or tastes like, or the mthod of making the perfect snow ball. It's like -- 80 degrees here. I'd love to live where you are. :P we should switch out for a week.


  2. Aw... where I live, it dropped like twenty degrees in one day. We didn't get a snowstorm, but it's pretty chilly! :( Poor Olivia.

  3. I hate when that happens! Good name for it! :) Nice photos!

  4. Okay, that dress is gorgeous! And your dad being attacked by the chickens? Hilarious!


  5. I'm loving the weather today! Yesterday -- 80. Today, 65. It's so nice. Don't worry though: your time will come. :)

    It was nice seeing some of your great photography again too! But I do love that dress!

  6. Oh, love that dress! Great pics.

  7. I love that dress!! Where I live, the warmest it has gotten is in the 50's! Melt, snow, melt!


  8. *gasp* That dress is ADORABLE! The first one of you and the chickens; priceless.

  9. Okay, you officially cracked me up. The picture of your dad was hilarious!! And I love love love that dress on you. Too cute!

  10. Ugh, aren't those heartbreaker storms the worst?! In Oklahoma, where I live, the weather changes so, so quickly...a few weeks ago, it was 75 and then we got over a foot of snow a few days later. Sigh. I feel your pain!

  11. aw that stinks big time. :( it better not do that here!!! (watch it happen....lol)
    really cute pics with the chickens. your dad, lol!

  12. The first words that came to mind when I saw the picture of your dad & the chickens was "henpecked". LOL. ;)
    It was awesome seeing some of your photography again. I do love your outfits, but...I miss your photos. :(
    Lovely dress!

  13. We don't have heartbreaker storms much in NC. We get heartbroken over the lack of snow when we want it.

    Not to make you jealous or anything but it's 70 degrees where I live and it was 85 yesterday.

    In Christ,

  14. Ooh, I'm sorry! :( It just snowed here too, so I know how you feel. *sniff*


  15. Wow, something similar (and less extreme) happened to us. Yesterday, it's 80 degrees F, and today it's back down to 60. :( Luckily, it's supposed to get warmer again tommorow.

    LOVE that dress! It's so cute. :)

    Love you!

  16. Argh we have weird jumps in temperature here too, this week it was 70 one day and the next it was 40. The shots with you and the chickens are amazing! Your dad seems like a fun guy too. :)

  17. Too bad about the snow :(
    The last time I saw snow was when I was 6 (we went up the mountains). I was only there for a day, though, but I can imagine it getting a bit annoying when it's around for 3 long months. Not to mention it melting and coming back the next day!!

    I love your dress... your blog... you!


  18. Oh, poor you! more snow :( I love your chickens!! Were you not freezing outside in bare feet?

  19. What kind of chickens do you have? We are raising some baby chicks for laying hens.

    I love that dress too!!!

  20. Great shots and you dress is amazing!!!

  21. i'm weeping with you, friend. seriously.
    and those chickens? they bring back memories. we had chickens the 1st couple of years we lived on our 3 acre "farm" {with no animals...except a inside cat}. the ending of the story? tragic. :(

  22. I love your vintage dresses ! So cute :)

    It's snowing here , too :( We're supposed to get 8-12 inches . Miserable !
