The winter is almost over though I feel like October was just a few days ago. My grandmother tells me that the older you get the faster time passes. A frightening proposition indeed but the one I increasingly believe it's true. Or it's just that I'm having so much fun lately that days are swooshing by incessantly. Anyway, I feel it's time to take a break before the spring comes in full bloom. A week of skiing will do me good, and spending time just with my girls even more so.
