“i wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? and then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, ‘go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.'” lewis carroll
if you know me at all then you know how much i dread winter. it’s too cold and too dark and as soon as the snow starts falling i feel trapped.
yesterday it snowed and snowed all day. and you know what? i didn’t hate it. i mean, don’t get me wrong, i didn’t love it but it was kind of pretty and refreshing. but more than that i think the lack of snow tears are a good sign for me personally. putting the effort into my emotional health has been work but i’m definitely in a different (better) place than i was even a year ago. so i’m giving snow a little credit for this reminder.
some things i’m looking forward to this winter:
alyson and her family coming to utah
sleeping under 10 lbs of bankets
sweaters! and scarves!
seeing the lights at temple square
all of the good wintery smells
harlow (jk i look forward to her every single day)
chocolate dipped peppermint jojos
what do you love about winter? i’m determined to try to love it.
