a little girl's snow day

this was the kind of storm that reminded me how fun it was to be a little girl.

i had flashbacks today of sitting by the heater _ toes pressed against the hot baseboard _ my wet gloves and socks upon it. attempting to warm my tiny body. the bottoms of my pants and sleeves still wet from the snow that stealthily snuck in through my boots and coat.

the heater would click .tick, as the water ran through the framework, of what remains today, my parent's home.

my cheeks and ears burned, for what seemed hours, as i defrosted inside.

the world felt so small then and i felt so big..
i miss those little girl days.

  1. I love this. I have those exact memories of defrosting my mittens on the baseboard. Snow days were such a part of our childhood!
