snow day

1 2 3 4When we first decided to move here, everyone had some objection to it.

“Don’t you know it’s cold there?”

“Murder Capitol of the World!”

“You’re going to freeze!”

Well I’m here to put all your worry to rest that not only are we happy, but none of those statements have proven to be true yet. Yes, it’s roughly between 15-40 degrees and it snows. ButΒ it’s not so cold that you can’t go outside or go to work. It’s just cold and we like it. We like that we can wear sweaters and comfy boots for most of the year. We like that we can play in the snow or slip on the ice. We like that cocoa and lattes are warming experiences to be enjoyed for more than a month! We like it here, cold and all. When was the last time you stepped outside and had 6 inches of snow to run and jump around in? For me, it was just a few weeks ago. Me & him. Snow everywhere. A dream come true.

β€œI love snow for the same reason I love Christmas: It brings people together while time stands still. Cozy couples lazily meandered the streets and children trudged sleds and chased snowballs. No one seemed to be in a rush to experience anything other than the glory of the day, with each other, whenever and however it happened.”
