Cold, White, Magic

When I was very young my family lived in South Florida.  I would watch Christmas movies and dream of places that had white winters, icicles, foggy windows, and just a few steps removed from the North Pole.

On my birthday, December 21, 1991 my family moved to Salt Lake City.  I longed so much to make my first snowball that as soon as a glistening embankment was spotted on the highway, we stopped just to touch.

I think that to celebrate my birthday next week I'll watch my favorite Christmas movie, Little Women, and imagine putting on my winter skin on a snowy hibernation day.

Merry Christmas.

I LOVE Little Women! I totally never thought of that as a Christmas movie until now - and now that I realize it is, I can get B to watch a "Christmas movie" with me, and will pop on Little Women. The perfect ruse to get him to watch a little Louisa May Alcott!

Soooo excited to see you New Year's Day!!!!
