My First Frost

24 Jan

This is a year of firsts for me. Getting back to school, adapting to a new part of the country and truly feeling like an adult. So, a whole lotta different going on. As mentioned before, I like change. I thrive on it. But no matter who you are, it can be daunting and unsettling. That was my thought when I noticed the weather changes here in Indiana. Actually, on seeing my first snow fall, my first thought was “what have I done? I don’t belong here.” But I do. It’s just different and takes some getting used to.

I have spent more than half my life in a sub tropical climate. First, the Bahamas and then Florida. No snow. Hell, if it got below 70 degrees people wore parkas. So this was my view this past week:

I was excited and then went, “what now?”

Thankfully, not a lot of snow. Mother nature needs to ease this FL girl into winter. But I have learned a few tricks. These are great for warding off the cold wind:

And on those long winter days when I feel like this:

Sometimes you just have to remember it doesn’t last forever and have a big cup  bowl of tea.

Stay Warm and Happy Thursday!

Adventure

9 Aug

Hi all!

It’s been a crazy whirl wind lately. I just got back from a trip to Quebec and Montreal. We went for a wedding, but it was really great to be able to check out new cities and get a feel for the area. Both of which are great. They have nice restaurants and cool shopping, but we found we just liked hanging out and seeing where we ended up, which served us well. We had so much fun. So, I thought I’d share some pictures.

I also head out for Indiana this week. So nervous and excited. I can’t really tell which side is winning. lol. But it’ll be a new adventure!

Happy Thursday!
