I do. Really.
I like the long evenings, the skating, the hot chocolate.
I like the quiet hush that falling snow brings.
I like blankets, sleds, icicles, and chickadees.
I rarely tire of Christmas carols.
I could stare at winter constellations for longer than my cold hands let me.
I think candy canes are the best.
I love having extended family around.
I like winter. Really, I do. That's what I keep telling myself, persuading myself to live out the rest of the winter enthusiastically. But lately, I've been looking at pictures, and you know what?
I really like spring, too.
