Well, it's been a brutal winter. Cold. Snowy. Icy. Windy. Melty. Repeat. I can honestly say I am SO ready for spring, for sunshine to bathe my body and for my bare feet to dig into the dirt once more. But since I live in Vermont, those days are still months away. So we only have two things we can do. Stay inside and complain (and to them I say, JUST MOVE IF YOU CONSTANTLY COMPLAIN 6 MONTHS OUT OF THE YEAR), or get outside and enjoy! I choose the later. I may feel like Ralphie from A Christmas Story everytime I bundle up most of the winter, but hey, it's worth it!
I enjoy the peace, calm, and tranquility of winter. When I bundle up to walk down in 0 degree weather to watch the sunset, chances are I am one of the only people, if not the only person, there (depending on if I go to a super sweet secret spot or not!). Every year, learning to embrace the winter gets easier... the cold, and the feeling of discomfort, which usually dissipates after a few minutes of being outside. I start to just revel in the fact that I get to live here, and for that I am so grateful. Burlington is magical, it has so much to offer, and I'm so happy that I've had the opportunity to find my home here.
