Michigan "Winter Wonderland" Memories

The snow falling upon the woods in my backyard today remind me of my native Michigan and the words "Winter Wonderland" come to mind. Winter Wonderland is a slogan Michigan is known for and as a child I found the state lived up to its name as I spent many winters sledding, ice skating, building snow forts and skiing with my siblings. Due to those early experiences, winter, unlike any other time of year, brings back special memories and makes me feel like a kid again.
Nightfall is upon us now and there is a driveway to be shoveled. But tomorrow with a fresh snowfall on the ground, I will look forward to spending some time outdoors and letting the years fall away.

Your place sure does look like Michigan with all that snow. We are experiencing lots of snow here in KY -- slippery driving. Stay snug -- barbara
