Since I grew up in a climate with four clear seasons, I really mark the year by those. And I love the variety that comes with weather; not just seasonally, but daily. This makes New England a good place for me, as we usually have a lot of variety. Even great weather gets a little old if you have it every day. And there's something awfully nice about a cold, blustery day spent curled up on the couch with a hot cocoa and a good book.
I like how the different seasons make me feel, and that they're an excuse to wear different clothing, and to do different things. I like getting to see the world as a new place every couple of months, and passing time not just as a line, but as a cycle.
Plus, of course, today, I'm thankful for the snow and coziness that comes with winter.
* To be fair, that probably also related to the fact that the whole experience was a lot like a long, adventurous summer vacation.
Why do I have no snow icon??
