What I Love About Snow Days

What I love about snow days | MothersCircle.netI love snow days!

I love the disruption in our normal schedule and the community feeling of hunkering down. I even love the preparation and the anticipation of a storm coming.

I love that regular responsibilities and expectations fall away – drifting with the snow. Obligations forgiven.

I love how the snow absorbs the sound and how neighbors come out waving and shoveling walkways after the storm. I love the sounds of the kids laughing and sledding and playing.

I love hot cocoa and marshmallows and remembering my mom having it ready for us when we came in from a snowy day. I love kissing the kids’ rosy, chilled cheeks and noses when they finally drag themselves in from the snow.snowy branch, Juno, blizzard, kids in snow, snow days fun,

I love how snow days slow us down. It’s what I crave and snow days grant us – or force us – time to stay still, to be home with family with nowhere to go or be. Snow days make us live in the moment and be present.

That’s what I love about snow days!

    What a lovely post! It doesn’t snow where I live, but I love the romantic picture you paint with words. I’m planning a trip to the mountains next year to let my kids experience the wonder and beauty. I hope it’s as magical as you describe!

      I love the snow – can’t stand the cold but LOVE the snow! I just got back from sledding with the kids – a great area nearby with huge hills. It was beautiful – the sun shining through the day old snow and the road still covered white are so pretty and quaint. Hope you get lots of snow on your trip!
