Winter Love

On Tuesday, we had our first snow here in Denver.  I wasn't thrilled that Old Man Winter was settling in already, but I have to say I am excited about a few things that the season brings.

For example:

- We celebrated the first snow with Pho.  Yea, it rhymes.  That is, unless you pronounce it correctly (fuh) in which case I would need to say we celebrated the first 'snuh' with Pho - but then it just looks all wrong.  And if you have no idea what I am talking about, you must save yourself from reading the rest of this semi-boring post and go and get yourself some.  Right now.  You won't be disappointed!  Ahem, moving on...

- I am looking forward to the first (and only the first) sidewalk shovel when I can wear my new fake Sorrel boots from Target.  I am pretty proud that I purchased these when it was still 90 degrees in Denver.  These knock offs become hard to come by once snow hits!

- Egg Nog Lattes.  Preferably in pretty Red Starbucks cups, although my homemade (and half the calorie) version is quite nice too.

- Cutting down our Christmas Tree.  I love that we have started a "tradition".  Logan was just a wee one in my belly when we cut down our tree last year.  I doubt she remembers.  Okay, and she probably won't remember this year either, but I can pretend.

- Dressing up Logan in her snowsuits.  She may or may not have 3 of them.  Who's excited to see this little Snow Bunny?

- Making my Christmas shopping list.  I really love planning the list - executing is sometimes a different story.  Every year I say I am going to shop on-line, but then I get a late start and have to suffer through the malls and the crowds and lines regardless.  All is well in the end though when I get to...

- WRAP.  I love me some Christmas Gift wrapping.  Strange?!

Okay, I could go on and on - clearly most of my loves revolve around the holidays.  What do you love about Winter?

It doesn't quite feel like winter here...60 degrees for the past couple of weeks...humid and rainy today even! But when winter finally gets here, I most enjoy running! While the first few minutes of outdoor winter running are not too fun, once you heat up, you become this anomaly of toasty, sweaty, warmth in a sea of cold, crisp dry air. I love it!
