Well. I tried to be mature about this. But waking up to snow this morning was not at all my cup of tea.
In fact, I felt like doing nothing more (or less) than griping and complaining. And I definitely let out a loud groan as I turned the coffee maker on, which probably (most definitely) woke my parents up. Yep. Real mature.
But a girl can change her mind, right?
I slipped on my flats (because I absolutely refuse to wear Uggs in April!) and stood on the porch, overlooking the magic around me. It was beautiful. Everything. Beautiful. The snowflakes were large and melted on my face as I grinned up at the sky. The world was asleep and I was completely alone. Watching the snowflakes. Life is so beautiful.
Dad walked into the kitchen and ate some breakfast with a mug of coffee. And then we decided to head out for our morning run. In the snow. I felt like a little kid on my day off from school, running and splashing through puddles. Fingers feeling numb from the cold. Face feeling frozen. This is what contentment feels like.
Happy Easter, everyone! I hope that you are able to enjoy the day with the ones you love the most. 😀
QUESTION: How are you celebrating Easter this year?

HOPPY EASTER !!!
Morning time can be so clarifying : ) I enjoyed your post this morning. It looks like you are making great progress with your training. Impressive. : )
I’m going to my sisters for lunch and then my boyfriends parents for dinner. Yayy Family!! Happy Easter!
Snow in April. I can’t imagine that here in the South. But at least you probably don’t have tornado watches, or at least I hope you don’t.:) The pictures are stunning. Have a Happy Easter.
It snowed here two days ago! I thought when they said “april showers” they meant rain.
If I knew how to send warmer weather, I would. If only magic were real! Great job for staying positive and finding the beauty in it! Oh yeah, and for running in the snow! I don’t know if you heard, but you get to count your distance as double if you run in the snow 😉
“I don’t know if you heard, but you get to count your distance as double if you run in the snow.”
Haha…I love it! 😀
I’m so jealous of your positive attitude!
I’m the same about Uggs in April though. The minute the summer comes I’m in my flip flops, regardless of the weather 😀
Hope you had a great day xo
Your half marathon is coming up so fast! You must be getting excited/nervous/giddy.
