As I said, in my very first blog post and as I say on my about page, I love the fall. It is my favorite season. It has always been. But a season I do not have a choice but to love is winter. My birthday is in winter, late winter (March) but still winter. I snowboard and ski, I live in New England, and all of these factors make it very hard to hate the winter.183285_1280_1024 I go to school near a mountain so I can snowboard whenever I very well please which is a great thing. And since it snows a lot, I get class canceled sometimes!

I am the person who loves to just go outside and have a snowball fight, or make a snowman or snow angels and then come inside and drink a nice hot cup of cocoa and warm up and then two hours later I am doing the same thing back outside freezing my butt off.

I love the snow falling; it is so peaceful and makes everything look so pretty and quiet. Everything seems to be at peace. I am a hopeless romantic so having a winter walking scene from a movie is something that I can only hope for in my head. It is a dream to have that scene one day like at the end of The Vow.

The only thing I dislike about the winter time is how cold it is. If I could have it warm and have it snowing at the same time, I would be a happy camper. As Phineas and Ferb said “Swinter” summer and winter mashed together for the best of both world. And yes I know I am in college and just quoted a Disney TV show.

What are your favorite things about the winter time? or do you hate every aspect of it? Let me know below!

Winter Activities

Do you snowboard, or ski? Go tubing or sledding? What’s your favorite “sport” to participate in during the winter? For me I have been snowboarding and skiing since I was in third grade. I stop from time to time but always go back. Right now I am on a snowboarding kick and cannot wait to go this summer. I work at a snow resort so I get to go whenever I like. I am not that great at either of those activities, Skiing or snowboarding but that’s not what matters, having fun is. Just try not to get hurt because believe me I have gotten hurt plenty a time and it is not fun, not at all.

I remember as a kid going tubing and sledding down a hill in my town with the rest of the town during the winter. Then they put a huge telephone pole in the middle and people ultimately started to not go anymore. But that’s what you do as a child unless you learn to ski or snowboard early in life.

I love just going out and playing in the snow with my friends. Having a snowball fight or making a snow angel is one of my favorite things. Making a snow fort that doesn’t fall on top of you is amazing. Then after you are all cold you get to go inside and drink hot cocoa with marshmallows and fluff on top and warm back up in a blanket watching a movie. That right there is probably the perfect winter day. Just add friends and or family and you are all set.

I am in college and I still do these things. I still go out and make forts or snow angels. I honestly do not think that will ever change no matter how old I get in life.
