It’s February. About this time of year, every year, I start really hating winter. Winter is my least favorite season. I hate being cold. I do my best starting about December 1st to keep positive, upbeat. I think the first few snow falls are beautiful and amazing. I love the heavy wet snow that allows us to build snowmen. But in the first week of February – that novelty has worn off. Winter is no longer pretty. It’s cold, and full of dreary gray skies.
I try to keep a positive attitude for the sake of my kids. I don’t want to be complaining and give them any sort of negative connotation regarding winter. I want them to see the beauty in each season. I have to remind myself of the beauty that winter holds. (I think this deserves a separate blog entry, more on that later.)
So to keep myself positive I like to flip through warm weather pictures. In this case, these were taken on a delightfully warm November day at Fernwood Botanical Garden. When I see these photos, I can hear the crunch of the leaves under our feet. I can feel the warm sun beating down on my head. I can almost smell ‘fall’.
