Winter.

Well folks...winter is here. It really is.
Snow is in the mountains.
Frost and ice is all over Neil in the morning.
I can see my breathe.
If I walked out with wet hair I could break it off like an icicle.
I can't feel my hands.
I fall all over the place on campus [and sometimes bringing innocent passerbys with me.]
And it is extremely difficult to get out of bed in the morning!

"I admit that in the past I've been a nasty"...ha, line from The Little Mermaid.
But really...I always complain about how much I hate winter.
Every winter I close to hate my life and wish every day that BYU was on HHI.
But I am going to turn over a new [frozen] leaf.
I am going to enjoy winter.
Now...with that said that doesn't mean I won't be able to have my moments where I cry from being so cold I can't think or I complain how it's April and still snowing BUT...
I am going to enjoy myself.

I am going to go tubing and ice skating and sledding and have snowball fights and make snowman and snow angels and make ice cream from the snow [clean snow] and drink hot chocolate multiple times a week and all while looking stylish!
I will admit...winter clothes are my favorite kind of clothes! I do not like being cold, but I think winter clothing is so great! I love how much you can do!! Scarves, mittens, hats, boots, jackets, sweaters, eatmuffs! The amount of accessorizing, mix and matching, and layering is unlimited. Oh I love it!

So that's it folks...I am going to have a better attitude about having to live in this Narnia.
Wish me luck in this endeavor cause some days it's gonna be dang hard to control my resentment for the cold.
Hopefully this 5th winter of mine will be better than the previous 4!
Peace out and Happy Winter!

hahahahaha! I absolutely love your perspective! You're so brave! Good for you! And attitude IS everything! So bundle up in all those fun, cute clothes and enjoy the beauty of the white all around you, even when it gets a little grey---hey, a very fashion conscious young lady recently told me that grey is in this season!
