Rewinding to the fifth grade, ten-year-old me and a few friends sat around a table playing a kid-friendly version of poker with the substitute teacher. With cards in hand, we took breaks to stare out the window at the white sheets of snow lining the ground. A few hours later, the principal dismissed us from school.

 

Walking down those hallways, my phone pressed against my ear as I begged my dad to let me walk with my friend, Skylin, to her house. “It’s too cold and dangerous,” he said. I assured him we’d be safe, and that it was only a five minute walk to her house from the school. Finally, he allowed it.

 

Inside Skylin’s house, we turned on some Justin Bieber vibes and heated up hot chocolate, piling it with mountains of whipped cream. Afterwards, we bundled up in huge coats, and I wore a pink scarf to match the gloves on my hands.

 

Surrounded by a chain-linked fence, her backyard felt spacious and open. When we stepped outside to play, everyone who passed by saw us. It was for that reason one of our mutual friends passed by and decided he’d join in our snowball fight. The free-for-all included slipping, diving, and tumbling face first into the snow. It’s a wonder none of us ended up frost bitten. I definitely did not win the snowball fight, but my snow angel sure did look best.

 

Several Hallmark movies and games of charades later, it was time to head home. The car ride home, I told my dad about all the fun during school and at my best friend’s house. Stepping out of the warm vehicle, my shoes crunched the ice. The satisfying sound it made put a smile on my face. My dad dragged me inside to warm up my red cheeks, but I continued to dream of playing in the snow.

 

Days filled with hot cocoa and Hallmark movies linger in my mind as I dream of snow days this school year. Please snow, help a girl out.
