For those of you who do not know me. I LOVE winter. Why are you going to a tropical island for a year than? you ask. Well, there are lots of reasons, I will not go into those details here, but I will provides some perspective on how much I love winter in the midwest with two examples.
Examples of winter love.
1. Every year I dance in the first snow fall and feel sad when the last brown slushy snow puddle melts. I may be excited for spring to come but I am always sad when winter is over. FYI this is generally not a normal reaction to snow. For a reference to what these scenes might look like check out my post on picking up my passport.
2. The one year that we did not have snow on Christmas… I cried. Snow to me means holidays where families stop fighting to come together. It means warm hearty soups. It means once a year decorations. It means fresh baked goods. It means clean slates. It means warm homes and happy hearts. I LOVE SNOW.
So I am bringing snow with me to Mallorca.
That’s right I am bringing snow. Now I cannot bring the literal snow. Not the cold wet sticky snow, but I am bringing with me the plastic kind. My mom gave me these ornaments for Christmas this year so I could have a reminder of her, my family, and snow on Christmas. I might take them out a little sooner than that.
What season would you bring with you if you could?
