Is winter over yet? Here in the Washington, D.C. suburbs, we’ve been hit by snow and extremely cold weather. Cold for us. I know to my family in Chicago, this is nuthin’. But here it practically paralyzes the city. And my life. My husband has been taking our four wheel drive SUV to and from work, leaving me stuck at home. With two little boys. I’ve exhausted my patience for kids’ crafts (we’ve painted two days in a row – I could never be an art teacher). I’m sick of Nick Jr and Sprout. I’ve been living in sweatpants and no makeup. (I mean why even bother at this point?!). If this lasts much longer, I’ll be a shell of the woman I used to be!!!!
I would love to imagine myself on a tropical island somewhere. But then I look outside and see my son’s tricycle stuck in the snow.
I might as well embrace this, right? I’m longing to be inspired by people who love winter. You know… like her.
So, instead of finding warm weather photos to just drive home the fact that I won’t be on a beach for at least another six months, I’m sharing these vintage happy-winter-people pics.
What does she need an umbrella for?
Just another party on a mountaintop.
Finally – a snowwoman!
These girls have a sense of humor!
I don’t know any nuns like this.
I think this is Young Republicans vs Young Democrats.
Let me know if you’ve embraced this weather, or if you’re fighting it like me! Misery loves company!
