I’m so glad I live in a place that has clear seasons. Like, for instance, when spring started earlier this week and we were showered with…SNOW. And now, the sun is shining, a bird is chirping and I’m freezing my balls off because it’s 28 degrees. Dear spring, you’re looking a little bit like your bitchy sister winter and let me tell you, it’s not a good look. Put down the eyeliner and take off those holey jeans. You belong in sundresses, aviators and pastel cardigans.

I don’t mind winter, when it’s, you know, WINTER. In December, I’m all about the cold weather. I stare outside as the snow falls down with a romantic grin on my face. I snuggle up by the crackling fire wearing a large, oversized sweater and fleece lined leggings. I’m all about that shizz. But when it’s late March and technically spring? I’m not all about it. Not one bit.

In fact, in excitement for the impending spring, I unloaded all of my warm weather clothes from the attic and shoved my sweaters, boots and long sleeve shirts in their place. Of course, I did this before the snow storm so I was slightly ill equipped to deal with the cold weather without proper shoes or a coat. And no, I did not dig out said clothes out of principle. When it’s MARCH IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE SEMI-WARM. I’d rather freeze than unpack my stupid sweaters when it’s practically Memorial Day.

This is also why I made coconut ice cream amidst the storm so I could further pretend it’s actually warm outside. Plus, this creamy ice cream tastes exactly like the mango sticky rice I had in Thailand almost every day. Except this is even better because it’s low-carb. Which I did on purpose and NOT because I couldn’t find sticky rice for the life of me.

For some reason people think I’m stubborn and I have no idea why.
