We experienced our first real snowfall in my city this past weekend. It had snowed here a couple times before, but this time a dusting of snow stayed on the ground, and it’s been lightly snowing ever since. It’s still not tobogganing snow, but it’s the most Christmas-like weather we’ve seen yet, so it was pretty exciting. I bought Michael Bublé’s Christmas album in celebration, and listened to it steadily this past weekend.
I also discovered the website dearphotograph.com and while I think you should both check out Bublé’s album, and check out this website, I encourage you not to do both at the same time. dearphotograph is a site where people can send in recreations of their favourite photographs. Users travel to the site of their favourite photograph and take a picture of themselves holding the photograph so that it blends in to the current day background. It’s a really cool concept, and the photos are really beautiful and nostalgic, usually celebrating the life of a loved one who has passed away. I started perusing the site just as Bublé started singing “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” and I fairly lost my grip and dissolved into tears. I had to then cheer myself up with a little Let’s Pretend This Never Happened and some Christmas shopping.
I realize that this might not have been the most convincing/recommending blog post.
