As a younger girl, I always described myself as a southern girl with a northern heart.
I hated the heat and humidity where I lived, and I longed to move up North where it was cool.
When I first met my future husband at college, I asked him if we were to marry someday if he would be willing to live up north. He was all for it because he knew of some great job opportunities up there. Long story short, we ended up getting married, and now, we live up north. I can say that I was not prepared for the weather up here. Although I longed for a nice, cool place to live, I was not prepared for how cold and snowy the winters would be. I literally had only seen snow a handful of times before I moved up north. We never once turned on our heat in our house down south, so having to use heat almost year round is crazy to me! I think that my blood is too thin to live up here. I cannot believe that I dreamed of living up north my whole life, and now that I am finally here, I hate it. It is just too cold. I freeze in the winter, and most of the time, I freeze in the summer. It only gets up to about seventy-five degrees during the day, and it drops down to the fifties at night time. I think the coldest it ever got when I was living down south was fifty degrees, and that was in the middle of the winter! I do not like to complain to my husband about the weather since he loves it up north, and I am the one who asked him to move up here in the first place.
