first snow

“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!

hot chocolate

seeing the lights at temple square

all of the good wintery smells

baking

harlow (jk i look forward to her every single day)

chocolate dipped peppermint jojos

twinkle lights

what do you love about winter? i’m determined to try to love it.
