|35| a Northernโ€™s letter to Winter.

๐’Ÿ๐‘’๐’ถ๐“‡ ๐’ฒ๐’พ๐“ƒ๐“‰๐‘’๐“‡,

How are you? We understand youโ€™re having troubles leaving and it appears youโ€™ve haphazardly left many of your belongings scattered about. Weโ€™d like to address this issue so you will consider staying with us again – within your regularly scheduled dates.

Please know that youโ€™re always a welcomed tenant, especially around the holidays, but weโ€™d appreciate a little more respect upon your departure. Your small remains do bring back some good memories of your time with us – Like the backyard pond you froze for us to skate on, the hills you covered in powder for some memorable sledding and the best family skiing yet, the mornings you woke us with pretty fluffy flakes, your photo worthy hoar frost, perfect blend of chill and sun for our snow shoeing adventures, and the unexpected moments that put is in the much needed mode that is Hygge – covered in cozy blankets, slippers and hot steamy coffee. We hope you understand that at this time we want to put those memories in a book on a shelf and save them forโ€ฆ letโ€™s say the week of Christmas 2021! Ok?!

We want to remind you that, considering our location, we have a pretty solid contract regarding your annual return and have no choice but to endure you. However, we have found you endearing and necessary to fulfill the personal recreations weโ€™ve truly enjoyed with you. With that being said, and looking back on 2020, weโ€™d like for you to check-out as soon as you can so we can keep moving forward from the unprecedented rough year (not your fault).

We have a new resident in town, with a short stay, a lot of work to do (with flowers, green grass and such) and the need for the space you still seem to be occupying. She has requested that you pick up your mess immediately.

We look forward to seeing you in December, and ask that you bring out the highly requested fluffy magic, the morning of 12.25 (there is no additional change – just a world of wishful kids – no pressure). We expect that you will abide by your contract next year around this time.

p.s. history tells us that you may throw a small tantrum soon. please consider our suggestion, to take a nice little 9mo rest – that should do the trick!
