We had planned on being in Philadelphia for Autumn and Winter this year and were really looking forward to the changing of the leaves and snow and cold. When the Phillies won the World Series, though neither of us are Phillies fans (I am not even a baseball fan) we were so sad to have missed the excitment and utter chaos in the streets there. Then Obama won in November and again the energy and frenzy going on in the streets would have been so fun to be there for! Instead, we looked at pictures of it online.
With the recent storms throughout the United States, a lot of snow and ice have fallen in Philly and NYC and all over. It really makes me sad we are still here! I am so grateful for how cold and rainy it had been this winter in Arizona though, because it almost feels like we live somewhere else. I have gotten to wear my wool winter coats 4 or 5 times and even a couple scarfs! I don't feel entirely nutty busting out my warm tights this year and have worn my boots quite a few times too. I can't wait to move somewhere new, but at the same time I am so grateful for what I have and what the future holds!
