winter love. or not.


Are you one of those crazies that loves winter?

Not me, no way.

Spring...where are you?
Please come back to me quickly.
The warm weather makes me so happy. About this time of the year, I get restless and sick of the cold. I've already gotten in all of my fave winter activities so I'm ready to bring on the sunshine.

But there are two things that I love about winter: ice skating and snowshoeing.
Both are really good exercise, a great way to keep the winter pounds off and have a little fun while you're at it. We are fortunate to live really close to the snow which is nice because we can enjoy it without having to shovel our driveway every day.

Here are some pics of A and I enjoying these winter activities.

What are some of your favorite activities this winter?

I am definitely one of those crazy people. It is that rare day with a beautiful snow fall and no wind. Then the sun glimmers. Beautiful....

My favorite snow activity, sitting in the house looking at the snow. LOL

Me! I love, love, love winter! I grew up in the middle of winter wonderland. Now I live in the city where we get hardly any snow and I just miss it.
My fav activity is def skiing. I was on the ski hill at the age of 3.
Nice pictures btw.

I'm with you...ready for spring. I really hate the cold, so I don't like to be out in it at all. Tried skiing a few times, but I wasn't very good at it, which didn't make it very fun.

I have a love hate relationship with winter. I love the ice skating type things, but its never cold enough for all that here in Texas. But I hate being cold. I also hate 110* summers. So I have a hard time with both :/

Wow! Looks beautiful! We don't have much snow in Australia, and haven't seen snow in 7 years! I am hoping to visit the slopes this winter :D

I love the snow, but we rarely get any in the willamette valley and we don't have the opportunity to head to the mountains even though we live so close. Hubby and I do like to ski, and we go about once every few years. I'm with you though, I'm ready to start seeing flowers and a little bit if sunshine,

Ha, ha!! I live in Houston, Texas. So Christmas is typically in shorts, t-shirts, and AC and even I dislike winter. I"m all about sunshine and warmth. Soon though, soon! The pics look great though.

Katie said...

i am very ready for spring!! i like sitting inside by a fire. :)

Emily said...

Hi from ICLW! You've been hitting up all my favorite spots in Napa! It's the best quick getaway spot :)

Linda said...

Skiing and sledding, although I haven't skied in years. It's so expensive now and driving up there is a nightmare of traffic.

Gorgeous pictures! I love snowshoeing, too ... we went last weekend under perfect clear blue skies. So beautiful and peaceful.

Happy ICLW!

I've lived in Michigan my entire 34 years, where it snows every. single. winter, but I've never been ice skating. I totally want to though, especially after seeing your pictures :)

Wow! I haven't been to the snow since I left California. Your making me want to go back. My favorite winter activity would have to be ice skating. I am not good at it but its fun trying.

Laura said...

I agree with you, I'm so ready for warmer weather. I don't usually mind snow, but for some reason these random storms this winter have sucked the life right out of me. With this most recent one it's been hard for me to be productive, I just want to be warm and cozy at home. It's been so cold and yucky here in Colorado these past few days.

Loved your pics! I still have yet to try snowshoeing, it is on my bucket list though.

Stay warm until spring finally arrives! :)

suzanne said...

My favorite winter activity is planning a vacation in a very warm place!! I love your pics though. Even though it looks cold, it looks like a blast!! :)

It's getting lighter later each night! Daylight's savings time is less than a month away!

Not me.

I love it during Christmas but after that...mehhh. Though I do like to go snowtubing.
