#SOL17 Day 11 Winter Is Here
Being raised in California, I (along with all those "blessed" enough to live in harsh climates) get through these dark days with a combination of humor and optimism. My family plans a trip to a warm climate each spring break, so we have something to look forward to on days like this. We have fires in the fireplace. We joke about how crazy we are to be transplanted from California to Chicago, when everyone else seems to be moving in the other direction.
Don't get me wrong. I love it here in the City of Big Shoulders. My husband and I have been here almost 18 years now. We have deep roots planted, friendships that we couldn't live without, and a daughter who is very connected to her school and community.
But in 13 days, we'll be in paradise for our 20th anniversary trip of a lifetime.
More on that tomorrow!
