Winter official arrived this morning at 5:44am but's it's been feeling very wintry for the past couple weeks. After the spring like temperatures of November, the cold and snow that arrived in December was a bit of a shock to the system.
The winter boots and coat and have been out for a while now, and I've adjusted. December is my favorite month of the year, and I'm not going to let a little snow and cold temperatures ruin that. I love all the festive gatherings with family and friends, the special foods that are only made this time of year and all the lights and decorations.
Today I start my two week Christmas break from the University and I am so looking forward to the extra time at home and the extra time with Rob most of all.
