Life Interrupted

In my opinion, there is nothing like a snow day! Here in the south life stops, businesses and schools close, and everyone stays home. It. Is. Wonderful. 

Last week we had two of those days. While we didn't get a lot of snow (less than an inch probably) we did have a good bit of ice that closed things down.

The girls and I enjoyed our snow days and having absolutely nothing to do. Our weekends lately are usually spent traveling, going to basketball games, going to church, etc. so it was nice to just relax! 

The girls and I spent time in the kitchen cooking, playing outside together, and catching up on some much needed rest! 

On Thursday the main roads were safe for traveling, but due to the icy spots on the back roads, school was closed again so my sis and I headed out with the kiddos for pizza and bowling. While bowling is not my hobby of choice, it was fun to be together with friends. Plus, every day is a great day when chocolate chip pizza is involved!!

So many times we think of interruptions as inconveniences- people, circumstances, events that detract from our plan for the day. However, many times if we will just embrace the unexpected opportunities we will realize it was just what we needed. In this case, life was interrupted by the winter weather, but it provided me an opportunity to make lots of fun memories and spend some much-needed quality time with my girls, and I'll take that any day!
