Underneath that coat is a prairie dress from Texas. Sophie woke up this morning and said she wanted to dress up and take some pictures outside so we did. At first she wanted to go outside without a coat but that idea evaporated quickly so she ran inside and put on my coat. Some people think winter looks bleak. I like it. Perhaps it reminds me of the monochromatic palette of the desert. Details that are normally missed suddenly take on a new importance.
