Hitting the White Wall

I love winter.  I love the snow.  I love that I don’t need to feel guilty for being inside.  I like fires.  I like sledding.  I like winter sports.  I like it al.

But, I’m hitting the wall.  It’s been a (wonderfully) snowy winter.  And frankly, I’d rather have snow than ugly frozen earth.  But, I’m ready for a break.  I’m ready to let N run in our yard.  I may even be ready for hockey in the driveway (which is REALLY saying something).

Spring, find us please.
