As someone who has spent most of my life living in places where winter = dreary days full of cold and snow, I cannot even begin to express how wonderful and amazing it is to finally live some place where winter = warm days full of sunshine. For the first time in my life, I feel like I have found where I belong. I was born to live here!
Almost every day this month, I have walked out the door and turned my face up to the sun to feel its warm rays beating down on me. And each time I do, I can't help thinking to myself, "It's November! I can't believe this is the weather, and it is November!"
And for all of you back home, yes, it is is warm as it looks! I was sweating up a storm sitting out there in all that black, and was wishing I was dressed in shorts and a tank top. I opted for the long skirt, simply because I'm allergic to grass and wanted to minimize the post-photo itching as much as possible.
