First Snow Magic

There's something magical about snow. The way it makes the landscape glisten, how pine trees appear greener, and the exhilarating chill of flakes falling across your face.

Living in northern New Hampshire, having an appreciation for snow is necessary to making it through the long winter months. (By early March, however, I'll admit that I'm counting the days until warmer temperatures kick in.)

No matter how many inches and feet of snow accumulates in our yards, it's always the first few that are truly delightful.

Age of Aquarius


After almost seven years with the MegaBug, I added another bug to my swarm.

This 2005 1.8T convertible is Aquarius blue has been elusive until just last month. After purchasing the MegaBug it's been on my list to find one of these (which they only made for about two years) and she's now in my driveway!

As Aquarius is also my astrological sign, I decided to name her Aquarius.


(Thank you, Shelby, for snapping these shots of me and my new bug! Taken at Nanny's new house.)


As for the MegaBug, she's going into semi-retirement. I could never let her go.

Meet Aquarius

If you couldn't tell, I'm obsessed with VW Beetles. Since I was 12 I dreamed of driving behind the wheel of one, and almost seven years ago the MegaBug came into my life.

MegaBug is my 1999 green bug and the namesake for this business. With over 200,000 miles, however, she's getting a little tired.

So I decided to bring home another bug.

This 2005 1.8T convertible is Aquarius blue (a color I've aaaaalways wanted). As Aquarius is also my astrological sign, I, of course, named her Aquarius.

I've enjoyed sunny days with the top down and driving Aquarius to shoots. I'm definitely in love!

But there's no way I'm letting go of the MegaBug. She is my first love and I will forever drive her. Plus they look adorable together.
