I am Thankful. Day 15.

I am thankful for changing seasons.

Although I spend the majority of winter loathing the weather and the snow, I still am so grateful to live in a place of changing seasons! I love change (mostly) and am always ready for the next season as the current one comes to a close. Although living in Cache Valley, there isn't really a Spring and there isn't really a very long fall. I still love each season and the uniqueness they each hold. I love to be able to experience the cold and the heat and everything in between, all within a years time! They each bring different activities, which brings different memories. Like the Fourth of July Lewiston parade and festivities or sledding up Hobble Creek Canyon on New Year's Eve... and I could go on and on.

Here's what I like about each season (yes, just the likes, because gratitude should probably be positive).

  • Fresh
  • Flowers
  • The end of Winter!
  • The start of warm weather
  • The season I was married :)
  • Bright colors start to come out: in nature and in clothing
  • The excitement for summer begins

I love seasons and I love our beautiful earth. It's so fun to be able to experience so many things in just one place-- I love it! 
I'm so thankful for seasons. :)
