On Tuesday in Gävle, Sweden, it was -1ºC (30ºF) and sunny. Little snow crystals formed glittering rain as they fell from the tree tops.
The skies were blue and the air was fresh — perfect winter weather.
It was my mom’s birthday and we had lunch at an Italian café.
Afterward, we took a walk down to the stream to enjoy the last bit of the day’s sun rays.
Then a bit of shopping before we went home and made mushroom pasta for the whole family who were coming over for the birthday party.
Oh, such a perfect day.
