    As always, you are so cute and photogenic, Ruby! It'll be spring soon enough (I think…), and then you can enjoy nice long walks by the river. And I'll look forward to seeing those amazing photos!

    Mine LOVE the snow, probably because we only visit it once a year, in the mountains, where it belongs.
