Enjoying the simple things.

Today is the day I'll be going up to the mountains.

I close my eyes and begin to imagine.

I pretend to grab it in my hands. But in my mind its texture feels like sand.

I make out a plan on how to build a snow "sand" man?

Will it stick? Will it stand? Do I still need some water in a can?

The drive was long but exciting, in any moment the snow will be falling.

The first flake gently lands on the windshield while we drive. I quickly roll down the window making my friends squeak in the car.

The Frozen misty air fills up the space of what used to be warm and with a smile in my face I extend my hand out into the cold.

I feel them landing on my skin, stinging like a jellyfish! They look like tiny starts melting by my warmth. As we continue to ascend the land turns to white, and the snowfall begins to intensify.

We finally arrive to the ski resort. I open the door admiring the snow on the ground. I slowly take a step and hear the Crunch beneath my boot.

Crunch.......... crunch........ crunch...crunch... crunch, crunch, crunch. Music to my ears as I continued to pick up the pace. I ran, I jumped, I fell backwards extending my arms and legs. I threw it up into the air, laughing and watching it fall.

It was everywhere, it was everything! My childhood dream finally becoming true.
