    I went on a first date one time with this guy, and I took him up to Grouse, and we went ice skating on the pond outside, then we went in for some hot chocolate and snacks I’d brought. It was a pretty amazing first date! The relationship didn’t last, but what a great memory!
    My fave snow activity… does sitting by the fire with a snifter of Bailey’s count??

    I live in Texas now – no snow πŸ™ my favourite winter activity was in Alaska walking home in the dark through dark woods. That muffled quiet. A little bit of snow falling, the soft crunch underfoot. It could have been any time period.

    It used to be making snowman with my one and only grandson when he was just a baby. Now that he is three, got picky with he looks of the snowman and it became back breaking for me. Now we just make snow angels even in the carpeted floor pretending that here is snow. It gets quite pricey to go up to any mountains these days.
