Dear Winter

Dear Winter,

It was love at first sight. I knew you were coming, and I prepared for you. I bought warm scarves and firewood. I welcomed the idea of snow storms. I embraced gloomy skies. I stocked up on hot chocolate & Baileys. And one chilly, November night... you blew into my life. I was in love, Winter.

But over the last few months... you've gotten a little... needy. Your gloomy skies linger just a bit too long. Those chilly kisses you brush on my cheeks are making me raw and chapped. And the hot chocolate & Baileys... well, it's making me fat.
And, you remember that other love of my life- Summer? Yeah..... he's kind of back in the picture. I mean, not yet. But I'm already preparing to let him back into my life. Let's be real. Summer is laid back and fun. He likes the lake, and tank tops and swim suits. He likes sunglasses. He likes warmth. And really, I don't know why I wanted him to leave so badly in the first place.

So- thanks, Winter. No, really. We had a few good months... weeks. But... we're done.
But, I may be interested in rekindling things later this year. November work for you?
