I admit, I'm struggling just a little bit with you this year.
I love the variety of the seasons in Utah,
but this winter has me feeling like I may never be completely warm again!
The kids are perpetually sick,
we're all going a bit stir-crazy,
and Wesley left a shoe in the backyard that has been buried beneath the snow for months.
In the midst of it all, though, I can recognize and appreciate the beauty of fresh snow.
And it makes for beautiful photos.
And Sam continues to love the winter--it lifts my spirits a bit to see his excitement.
So while I'm longing for evenings spent playing in the backyard, long afternoons playing in the water and reading in the shade, fireworks and camping trips and ice cream cones and BBQs...
there is tremendous joy in the moment as well.
And now I think I'll put on my sweats and crawl under a couple of down-filled blankets.
