Here in New York winter seems to last forever. It's from late November to the end of March..which seems like a lifetime. The nights are longer..days are shorter..it's constant darkness and frigid air. I try to value every moment of daylight I can salvage by spending it outside...so this past weekend I visited a friend in the city...got myself a Valentine's Day donut and then we visited the central park zoo. We spent a lot of time in the bird exhibit since she adores the feathered fellas and it was 100 times warmer inside. Made me feel like I was back in the keys again.
