Dova and I don't seem to have much in common (besides stubbornness), but there is one thing that is irrefutable. We both adore the beach. When we got the opportunity to visit the warm waters of Florida on our Disney trip last year, she immediately kicked off her sandals and ran towards the waves. It was a glorious late afternoon, with the golden hour sun spilling down her back and legs, not a care in the world.
Quite a contrast from the snow this week and the ice storm that we were greeted to when we returned last year. I have this photograph on my desk at work, and I find myself looking at it longingly. Of course I love the snowy New England winters, but I’d love to manage a warm vacation getaway every year. Without the cold and the snow, these trips and photos wouldn’t have the same impact.
I know for a fact that Dova is still thinking about the beach, as witnessed by one of her latest Kindergarten drawings:
So are you enjoying a mild winter down south or are you getting socked with snow like we are in New England?
