it's still an absolutely beautiful day here. it's just so strange that we haven't had any snow here. utah usually has tons of snow by now. i'm definitely not complaining.....i would much rather have warmer weather. i was born in california so i probably am more inclined to a place where there's lots of sunshine. i remember when i was really little, we lived by the beach, across the street actually.....from the ocean. i miss that so much. i have such happy memories of living by the sea. at night, i could hear the waves quietly landing on the shore, just outside our house. i miss being near the ocean.
