As I am creating this post, I’m sportin’ a brand new pair of Teva boots I just bought. They are so warm and comfy. I wanted to share the happiness with you, and sooooo we’re having a Teva giveaway! To celebrate Teva’s 30th anniversary – and to help us all look forward to summer – Teva is giving away a pair of their very cool sandals. To enter, see the details at the bottom of this post.
If you live in Florida, or the Caribbean, or some other enviably warm place, and you think you may be tempted to laugh at our shivery frozen tundra – just skip this post. That is, unless you feel sorry for me and want to fly me some place warm for the weekend. Or for the month. If that’s the case, read on. And you can send me my flight information by contacting me here. I can leave on Thursday.

So, here’s what I’ve learned so far about winter in Michigan:
Snow boots make playing outside so much more enjoyable. Thanks Teva! These are the warmest, most comfortable snow boots I’ve ever worn. You’ve made wintertime fun!
It’s important to always tie my new snow boots before I start running, otherwise I might end up falling like a two-year-old and burying my face under a foot of fluffy white stuff. (No picture for that one. Sorry. 🙂 )
Our regular “hikes outside with nature” have morphed into regular “sled rides outside in nature”.
We sometimes do more crashing than sledding.
It is possible to fit three pairs of long johns under my jeans and not walk too much like a penguin.
No matter how much momentum I have going, my little car is not a monster truck and won’t plow through a 3-foot snow drift.
After a day outside, hot soup and a warm fire are the perfect remedy for those cold fingers and toes.
Don’t drop a spoon in a snow drift. It instantly disappears and you may not find it ’til June. (What? Doesn’t everyone eat their lunch outside in the snow on a sunny day?)
The first day of winter is only a few weeks after the last day of winter.
You know you’re talking to a native Michigander when they refer to the recent 20 degree weather as a heat wave.
What’s the weather been like where you are? Are you enjoying winter, or are you looking forward to summer? Wishing for summer? You’re in luck!!
It’s Teva‘s 30th anniversary and the very sweet people there want to celebrate by giving one of my readers a pair of their really cool (as in comfortable, durable, and everything else good) sandals. How fun!
