This winter has been particularly cold and bitter in most parts of the country and our skin takes a huge hit when weather becomes so extremely cold. Being a Latina, the cold, snow and ice are especially hard because my body still thinks I live in a tropical country and takes those changes harder than most people’s bodies do.
Instead of hiding at home, waiting for spring to come, I have decided to venture outdoors and make the most of this atypical winter! I can’t even begin to describe all the fun it has been, sharing these great moments. We looked for different activities on line and here are some of our favorite ideas:
Here are some of my family favorites:
-My son, hubby and I went for a walk in the woods behind our home, enjoying the beauty of a naked forest!
-My son and I lost count of the snow ball fights!
-My husband taught my son to shovel the driveway, so he could help older neighbors after the storms!
