White Christmas?

Now I realize I could be jinxing myself here, but if there is a sudden downpour of snow in the Denver metro area, I take no responsibility. However, it has not snowed, like really snowed, at all this year. Sure, there have been a few days with some random flakes, but last year we had feet of snow before Halloween. Feet, people! As of today, Dec. 13, there has been no real snow in town to speak of. I know it's coming, and I'm crossing my fingers that it doesn't come next week when I am trying to get back to Texas, but at the rate things are going, there may be more snow in Dallas than there is here (and that's really saying something). If you need some holiday cheer, you'll have to satisfy yourself with this photo from last year.

And just for fun, here's a photo of the boyfriend looking like that snow shovel guy that made me cry from Home Alone. He's digging out my shiny red car while I take photos, which is some great teamwork if you ask me.

Oh, Gatsby!

In preparation for the new movie iteration, I decided to reread The Great Gatsby. Naturally, when I first read the book as a high school freshman, I was captivated by the world of Gatsby with his lavish parties and endless champagne. It's interesting to rediscover a book after the passing of a few years. The book has not changed, yet I find myself relating to it in a completely different way and discovering all sorts of new facets. Although the book has remained the same, I have indeed changed quite a bit since first reading it.
