Winter months in Traverse City are long, cold, and grey. The sun does not come out much and it is easy to be caught up in the darkness. That is probably why we don't get many vacationers in the winter months. Maybe that is why I love grey with newborns. I love seeing a ray of sunshine in a dark surrounding. It makes my heart warm and reminds me of home. I couldn't love this whole set up more. It is simply gorgeous.
