I used to be a winter person, but something happens when you get older and you realize that winter is hard. It’s long, dark and cold. You get cranky that the city hasn’t cleared the sidewalks and you pine for the days when you can leave the house in your flip-flops. This winter has been different, though. It’s still cold and dark, but I have been enjoying myself like I haven’t in a long time. My pup needs to get out for his walks and we’ve been hanging out at the dog park. Playing fetch and running through the snow (George, not me). We stay out forever! It’s like being a kid. It’s just so beautiful!
This past weekend, up at the lake, my hubby and I were out in the woods with the dog on a mission to dig out his stuck ATV. After he and the dog took off into the distance, I went home for my camera (and spare batteries…it was COLD!) then headed back to the peace and quiet of the forest. The snow clinging to the remaining leaves on the trees. The warmth of the leaves juxtaposed against the cool white snow. It really was something.
