While I'm here, happily sipping on chai in the quiet indoors, she's out there, as I'm sure she will be all morning -- until every last ice crystal melts away. Playing, shoveling, running, sliding -- experiencing to the fullest Old Man Winter's gift of ice.
She is my all-weather girl. Fully alive. Fully immersed when she is outdoors. If she has her way, she prefers the natural elements rather than walls.
Her joie de vivre inspires me to no end.
And just so you get the full experience of the last photo. Here's 55 seconds of real footage. FUN!
