The plans that we've made . . .

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?
In the lane snow is glistening.
A beautiful night,
We're happy tonight,
Walking in a winter wonderland.

Gone away is the bluebird,
Here to stay is a new bird.
He sings a love song as we walk along,
Walking in a winter wonderland.

In the meadow we can build a snowman,
And pretend that he is Parson Brown.
He'll say: Are you married?
We'll say: No man!
But you can do the job when you're in town.

Later on, we'll conspire
As we dream by the fire.
To face unafraid the plans that we've made,
Walking in a winter wonderland.

- lyrics by Richard B. Smith

P.S. Last weekend M and I got engaged in the middle of a snow storm in NYC! Merry Christmas to everyone and Happy New Year!

Congratulations! A snowstorm is the perfect time to propose.
I promise I'll have more to say in the New Year, but for now, congratulations and Merry Christmas!
