Yep, A Post About the Weather: SOLSC Day18

Yep, A Post About the Weather it was bound to happen.

So many times I find the word perspective playing a role in my life.  So much so I think it should've been my one little word for 2018.  Maybe next year.

My oldest daughter goes to grad school in Charleston, South Carolina where the sun shines most of the year, and where she can choose to go to Starbucks or the beach to read or do her homework.

I live in central Ohio where it snows and stays between 10 and 32 degrees for two to three months of the year. My reading and homework spaces most certainly include a cozy fireplace.

 But now, spring is on its way, and we are excited to see the sun and my daughter is home for spring break.
 Our spring is Charleston's winter.

So this morning when we woke up, and it was predicted to be sunny with a high of 53 degrees I dressed in ankle pants, a long-sleeved t-shirt, and my slides.  When I met Lexi in the foyer, she was wearing a cable knit sweater, long jeans, and ankle booties.  We both laughed as I reached for a light wrap and she reached for her parka!

It's all about perspective.
How's your spring perspective?

I live in southeastern Pennsylvania - wow 53 degrees is the start of a heat wave! I am so tired of our beloved Nor'easters. Bring on spring!!

Amen! Anna and I laugh about the exact same things....

Deb, you are so right. What I call cold is so different than what my Florida friend calls cold! Got to laugh at those oddities. It is sunny here on Long Island but the sun is not really warming up our day.

So true! I am amazed when SoCal friends come and are cold and I'm like wearing a tee shirt and sandals.

I love this post! I'm not too far away from your daughter. I live in North Carolina. I do think we have the best weather here. I grew up in Florida and it was wayyyyyy too hot for me. I love living in an area that has four seasons, but the winter is not extreme.

This makes me laugh. When Jeff's aunt comes from Florida she spends most of June & July with a sweater. Oh, perspective. Let's home warmer weather is on the way. I like your optimism.
