Winter Diaries: Part 2












My entire world has turned white. It's gorgeous. It warmed up to about 20 degrees this weekend, so we opted to get outside. We spent the weekend in this white world bundled up, playing in the precipitation. It was a blast- skiing and sledding. And falling. a lot. 

 I'll never forget the first time I went skiing with my in-laws here in the Midwest, everyone geared up- hats, gloves, goggles, face masks. I looked around the hill and was suddenly lost. I couldn't recognize anyone because I couldn't see their faces! I've now make a mental note of what jacket my husband is wearing so I can recognize him. 

I'm learning to embrace and enjoy the cold. Completely out of my comfort zone still, I can't help but let my mind wander to Christmases in Florida I spent barefoot in my backyard. But let's not discuss that.
