Winter in New England...

Have I told you how much I love winter?

Let me clarify...I don't always love the cold, but I do love the snow.

The brisk air of a walk in the snow,
the quiet of the streets just after a snowfall
and the weight of snow creaking on the limbs of the trees,
making snowmen, with scarves wrapped around their necks
snowball fights, with snow down my neck
itchy mittens and floofy earmuffs
and coming in from the cold to hot cocoa with marshmallows.

It's been quite a winter already here in Massachusetts.  We've been blanketed with snow and cold temperatures since the New Year.   Winter is a long season in New England, so I've learned sometimes you just have to embrace it!
