For Thanksgiving weekend, I had the opportunity to travel to southern Nova Scotia for the long weekend. The fall colours were bright, vibrant, and the maple leaves glistened in the sunlight. For early October, the weather has been warmer than pervious years and I’m welcoming the warmth and sunlight on my skin. I’ll prolong fall’s typical cold and frost covered mornings for as long as I can. As much as I love the fall colours, I know what the beautiful red, yellow, and orange leaves mean—that winter is coming. As you know by now, I’m a summer baby all the way. A sun worshiper as they’re called (just like my mommy). Hence why I chased the sun last year and skipped the Canadian winter and headed to Australia in January. Now I am back to experiencing the beauty of the changing seasons. I witnessed eastern Canada’s summer turn to fall, and soon fall will turn to winter.
Until then, I will embrace the beauty that surrounds me and hope that winter is also abnormally warmer than usual as this fall has been. One can only wish.
Any advice for how you cope with cold weather?
