When you think December, you think gusty winds, chilly air and maybe even snow. You don’t think balmy breezes, warm air and maybe even a temperature of 70 degrees. However, the latter is what Maryland delivered its residents today.

The good

I spent my afternoon walking around two different lakes in Columbia, Maryland, with the boyfriend, enjoying the beautiful day. I wore a short-sleeve shirt without a jacket while Blake broke out his shorts.

The bad

While noting how great the weather was to the cashier at Trader Joe’s, I was secretly wishing for a snowy, blustery wonderland outside. I spent the day missing the warmth of my favorite over-sized turtleneck.

We always want what we don’t have, right? I’m sure if it was 30 degrees outside I’d be secretly wishing for spring-like weather.
