Going against my nature.
I'm not a winter creature. When the wind starts to blow cold, I retreat under snuggly blankets with neverending cups of tea. I hate to be cold (and I seem to have been cursed with cold-naturedness) so I would hibernate all winter if I could. Hibernating is wildly underrated in my opinion. I might wake up to watch a snowfall or two--from the safety and warmth of the great indoors, of course. It's beautiful, yes, but it's just as beautiful from the other side of a window.
So then, it goes against any logic, and really my very nature, that we went to the battlefield on a snowy Saturday last weekend. We drove the winding roads through snow-covered fields--stopping now and then to hop from the car to snap some photos, and run back, chilled and giggling. Freeze and thaw, freeze and thaw. Winter might have claimed a little piece of my heart.
