The summer temperatures are beginning to cool and the other day I realized how much I’m going to miss winter and snow. Last ”winter” (in quotes because we had such a mild winter last year I’m not sure I can really consider it winter by my standards) I discovered my love for snowboarding (thank you snow machines) … and unless I have the opportunity to do some boarding in the mountains of Chile or Argentina (which would be incredible), I won’t be seeing snow for at least another year and a half when I (I plan to) come home for Christmas. (Lots o’ parentheses.)
This is my first realization of all the little things I’ll be giving up to follow my dream of joining the Peace Corps. It’s a bit strange that it’s snow that’s the first thing I expect to miss. Maybe I can convince Erin to bring along my snowboard when she comes to visit … I hope I can run away to the mountains for a little while.
(I won’t miss having to shovel my car out of snow drifts … the bright side.)
