Weekly Whistle: Overdressed in the Snow at Founders Park

IMG_8355

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

We have been hit with yet another snowstorm, which left me scraping 6 inches of snow off my car this morning + shoveling a driveway for the first time in my life *wink*

Even though I am not a huge fan of the snow, it does make for some pretty fabulous photos…especially at the beautiful Founders Park in downtown Johnson City! Now, while I go warm my toes by the heater, y’all take a look at this week’s Weekly Whistle! To stay updated on my snowpocalypse fun, check out my Twitter feed below. :)

Stay warm and fabulous, y’all!

Broken bicycles
Old busted chains
With rusted handle bars
Out in the rain
IMG_7736 IMG_7726

Somebody must
Have an orphanage for
All these things that nobody
Wants anymore

IMG_5684 IMG_5695

September’s reminding July
It’s time to be saying good-bye

IMG_5700 IMG_5702

Summer is gone
Our love will remain
Like old broken bicycles
Out in the rain

Broken bicycles
Don’t tell my folks
There’s all those playing cards
Pinned to the spokes

IMG_5725 IMG_5735

Laid down like skeletons
Out on the lawn
The wheels won’t turn
When the other has gone

IMG_5713 IMG_7642

The seasons can turn on a dime
Somehow, I forget every time
IMG_7650

For all the things that you’ve given me
Will always stay…
Broken, but I’ll never throw them away
