Wordful Wednesday

I thought I'd give Wordful Wednesday a try this week.

It's already COLD.

Summer was so mild that we rarely had any hot, hot days. It was like summer never really got here. We had days when we had to wear pants and long sleeved shirts. Flannel footie pjs in August.

And "fall"...well, we skipped and seemed to have gone straight into winter.

I hate the cold.
Quite ironic for a girl who grew up in the North, moved to the South for 7 years, and then dragged her husband back to the cold.

It was to be near family, not because of the weather. Even though I tried to tell Hubs it's not so bad.

Hubs, who had never seen more than an inch of snow.

But, in a few short weeks, we are moving from here in the cold North to the coast in the South.

Here is the view from our back deck:

I can so easily picture myself sitting there, reading a book and relaxing.

Can't wait to take my boys for walks on the beach.

Go to sleep with the sounds of the ocean.

No, I certainly will NOT miss the snow.

Family, yes, but who wouldn't want to leave the snow and come visit when they will get that gorgeous view from our new place?

Ahhh, that looks nice! We also had a very mild summer and now a very cold fall. Snow in early October is just wrong!

We seem to have gone straight from spring to winter! No snow yet but I am NOT looking forward to when we get some!

That is a beautiful view! I would do almost anything to have that outside my back door. Enjoy it!

I could NEVER make it up north! Brrrrrrrrrr. ;)

I am a southern girl living in a coastal state....though not oceanfront! Nice digs!! I'm sure you won't be without family very much. Shoot, with that view, I'LL come see you! LOL

Where do you live now?

And that backyard view is fabulous! You will be on a permanent vacation. Nice!

Can I come live with you, please? That looks like paradise on a cold nasty day like this one.

When you get to the beach, I'll head over too! What a beautiful place to read and relax!

What a great WW! I live in the south and miss snow and four seasons terribly!

Come on over! :)

Karen, you only miss it b/c you haven't had to deal with the snow! I thought I missed the seasons until I moved back and realized that I'd rather be warm!

It's so nice to hear such positive comments about my move. All I have heard from my mother is one big long rant about how I'm destroying her life by moving away. Like moving isn't hard enough to deal with.

Someone slap me if I get like that.
