Yes, we live in Maine. Maine is code for "long, cold winter". Cold as in really cold. As in negative temperatures cold. That lasts forever and causes our pipes to freeze a dozen times so far (grr). But, you know what? As long as you have the right gear, cold isn't really that bad. We know. Because we're outside daily, regardless of the weather. Winter is too beautiful to enjoy from inside. Getting out in it, smelling the fresh air, hearing the stillness matched with the crunch of the snow beneath your feet just opens your mind to open-ended thoughts. How I love to let my mind travel. And all that exercise totally earns you an extra dessert.
As I mentioned, we're out in it daily. In our boots, on snowshoes on sleds, sometimes skis or skates. Sometimes snowpants and sometimes impromptu play that we never even properly dressed for. Something fun, yes, but nothing with any motor other than what our own two feet can power us to do. I hardly take the camera, as there's no suitable place to set it when I want to be having fun. So I most often choose fun over the camera.
