As I get older, I find getting excited about snow harder and harder.
Now when I see snow falling from the sky I think about road conditions, shoveling my driveway, and cleaning my puppies from their snow shenanigans.
When I was younger you would rarely see me inside on a snow day. I loved to cross country ski, build snowman, and ice castles! But now I tend to just grumble about the inconvenience of it all. If I go out at all its typically to going hiking. The forest is so calm during the winter. I feel relax and connected when I am out amongst the trees with snow clinging to every branch.
This year I am going to make an effort to love the snow. I am going to learn how to snowboard! Or maybe take up snowshoeing! Who knows what might stick. The only thing that is certain is that I will make an effort to get back in touch with this season.
If you are not a snow lover take some time this year to try to enjoy being outside during the winter. Just remember to bundle up!
