I've been at Mom and Dad's since Christmas Eve and will hopefully be home in the next couple of days. We'll see because it is unbelievably snowy here and I'm a little nervous to drive on these icy roads.
The snow makes everything in the country look pretty, it's true. But just today I found myself saying, "I'm already impatiently counting down the days till spring. . . "
I'm not a winter girl. I'm just not. I WANT to enjoy it, I REALLY do. I even made an effort to take a little country winter walk yesterday, which was beautiful. The best part to me, though, was getting back inside to get all warm again!
Warmer climates are constantly calling my name. I found this picture below and it reminded me so much of looking back on and longing for those sunny, humid days of June, July, and August.
On a positive note, I think that one of the sweetest things about winter is that it gives us such a perfect opportunity to simply REFLECT. Journal writing has been such a wonderful outlet lately. My next challenge to myself is to brave the cold more often and to take pictures of delightful things that I enjoy about this chilly season.
Wish me luck! ;)
P.S. Time for New Year's resolutions soon. Have you made any yet?
