LOTM- Winter Activity

Photobucket
As ladies who love being outside, we can't let the colder seasons keep us from having fun. So today we are sharing an idea for a winter activity. I wish I had time to go do something big and crazy, but I've been pretty busy, so it needed to be something simple.

It has been incredibly cold here lately, and while that can be depressing there are lots of things that make it worth while.

The icicles around these parts have been stunning. They're growing on every corner and are bigger than usual.

So for my Winter Activity I bundled up and decided to go on an Icicle Hunt! I wandered around my neighborhood and took pictures of every icicle I could find. Plus, it gives me an excuse to go for a walk in this freezing weather.

So go ahead and get outside, brave the weather and enjoy the beauty.

Be sure to check out the other LOTM!

It's amazing how gorgeous something so simple as icicles are! This is honestly such a great idea for something to do in these freezing cold temperatures. ;)

The icicles are so stunning, it's not could enough in Holland to see them grow here, but when I see them somewhere I love it!

Seeing this post makes me think of the time that David's sister found a giant icicle while we were on a day hike in Alabama. She wanted to take it home, so what did we do? Tied it to the top of the car, along with all of our luggage. It was kind of awesome and I will forever have a special place in my heart for those frozen blocks of ice. :)

I don't like winter at all, but I've always thought that icicles were really pretty. This post backs that up for me :)

Love icicles! They are pretty dangerous and I always act like a hero and destroy those that hang above the entrance or sidewalk :-)

Whoa, the icicles look so pretty! I've never lived anywhere cold, so it would be cool for me to see icicles one day. ^^

I love icicles! It never seems like winter without them. That shot of them coming out of the gutter downspout is neat. My grandma's house always had huge icicles, but it was mainly because her house was poorly insulated. oops. :)

Oh, and love that winter hat you're wearing!
