Flip flops and corduroy. Shivering with the top down. Yellow leaves on the grass. Dried up flower beds. Time to face reality. October in the mountains means winter is very near. It’s not that I don’t like winter. Rather, I really like summer. Sunshine, boating, hiking, biking, evenings on the deck. It’s just all so good.
Time to switch gears and focus on the good things about winter: big, giant snowflakes falling at night; sitting by a warm fire; sunshine glitter on new snow; floating on powder through trees; watching my kid ski race; snowshoeing with my hubby; Christmas.
