Snow Day

In the midst of a busy fall semester, my family decided to take a trip to one of our favorite places: North Carolina. In a nutshell, we’ve been visiting NC since my brother and I were tots, but haven’t made it up that way for about five or six years.
Needless to say, I was more than excited to be traveling back to what I like to call my second home. If you don’t know me personally, you should know that I would cancel any and all plans for a trip to my happy place. So, I skipped attending the Florida vs. Georgia football game this year to see the beautiful fall leaves and Great Smoky Mountain views. But, none of us predicted that we would get the chance to see snow again, too. Yes, you read correctly; SNOW DAY.
This Florida girl was ecstatic to roll around in the white powder with my dog and act like a 4-year-old.
The first day of our trip was taken up mostly by driving, with our arrival to the cabin around 9 p.m. But, the second day (aka snow day) was absolutely glorious and made me want the holidays to arrive even sooner. My younger brother and I woke up to what looked like Christmas day outside (at least how a Floridian would imagine a perfect Christmas) and went running for the sleds. After acting like children and several cups of hot cocoa later, the five of us — my pup included — got the chance to sit by the fire and watch the Gator football game. Yes, we are loyal fans, duh. The day consisted of football, snowball fights, and lots of baking and cooking, including some pumpkin rolls and fresh banana bread.

It was such a perfect first day of the trip with my family. Stay tuned to see how we spent the rest of our trip (and to see some amazing fall leaves and views)!
Happy Hump Day, readers!
xx, B
