You know? I often times thank the heavens that I was born in Utah. Really, it's the perfect place for a girl like me! Besides the Fall being just amazing, the winter is SO RAD! Here is my reasoning for the awesomeness of winter:
- It is beautiful
- Christmas and MY birthday (reason enough, I know)
- Snow sports
- Layering up in sweaters and thermals
- Boots!! Hello?
- Wearing kick-A dress coats to church and such
- Being cold is a perfect excuse to cuddle
- Warm fires
- Cozy socks and quilts and blankets
- Hot chocolate
Please, try and tell me different on my list. I will fight you. And you know, I get it. Summer and Spring are great. I myself have plenty of reasons to want those to come sooner (swimming, boating, convertible, cute shorts and sandals...), but I'm a winter girl! I just love it!
Some other cold things I enjoy include: ice, ice water, frozen nuggets, frozen pizza... I guess these are edible things and totally off subject... sorry. Oh! Last Saturday, I went to a Bob Sledding time trial thing up at the Olympic Park in Park City - so fun! It was cold and snowy and windy and wonderful.
That's my friend, Bob, and me freezing our butts of and loving it. Not a very flattering picture, but you get the point: Gorgeous winter day.
This is a bobsledding team racing down the track. Yes, these photos are taken with my iPhone. It can do everything. It even made us hot chocolate later that day.
Lastly, if you know me well at all, you know that I cannot leave the house without my J.Crew Puffer Vest. I will be heartbroken when it's too warm to wear them.
