let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

[day twenty-two: your jacket]

my jacket is one of those things of mine that a lot of people tell me i should upgrade, but that i love too much ever to replace. (i'm going to write this post about one specific jacket of mine, though i do have more than one.) plus it's still in perfect condition so i can't see why i should get rid of it. it's a long, puffy, black one that i got from esprit close to six years ago. it sits in the closet most of the year, but it's one of my favorite things about winter.

speaking of winter, i really wanted to have it this year. i really wanted cold days and snow. we had that one day of heavy snow back in... october, was it? something like that. anyway, after huge flakes falling all day, nothing stuck. then we had i think it was two other pathetic attempts at snow. there were a handful of cold days, but for the most part, winter was super mild. and now we completely skipped over spring and jumped right into eighty degree summer weather. i know tons of people who are happy about this, but i wanted winter. i want spring.
