I remember the first time I came down to visit Garrett during the Christmas holidays while we were still dating. I was amazed to see people still walking around in shorts and even going to the beach. Not that I grew up where it snowed, but at least around Christmas it was cold and we would sit around a fire. Lots of times we would travel to my grandparents house in Oregon and we did get quite a few white Christmases.
Luckily/thankfully, we now have a place to go to get our fill of the snow when we want it. A few years ago the Rileys bought a place in Mammoth so several time throughout the year we go and play in the snow, ski, and enjoy the real winter feelings. This year I really want Kevin to get out on skis but I think I have scared him by telling him I was scared going down the mountain. Hopefully he will look past that this year. I really like it when we get to take walks while it's snowing and everything is so quiet and peaceful. Opening day for the ski season there was on November 7th. I'm not sure when we will get up there, but I am looking forward to a real snow day!
