Indianapolis Lifestyle Photographer | Raw Sugar Photography
Oh man. Winter. I have to admit, I have a really hard time with this season. I grew up in South Florida and went to college in Louisiana, the Midwest and I don’t get along so well when the temperature drops below 50 and the skies turn gray. However, I have a strict “no complaining about weather” rule, because what’s the point? You can’t change it, and you gain nothing by whining. The best way I’ve found to combat those winter blues is to stay busy and pretend, to the best of your ability, that it is in fact, 80 degrees and sunny outside. Hence, our bathtub beach parties were born.
We started these when we moved into our new house 4 years ago, and they’ve become an annual winter tradition to which we all look forward. It’s an instance in which the simplest of things turn into the best memories. So, when the temperatures outside are hovering in the 20’s and the sun hasn’t shone in 4 days, and maybe your driveway is covered in ice and the yard with snow, crank up the heat, turn on some Beach Boys (or whatever beach music you prefer,) put on your swimsuits and sunglasses, slather on the Coppertone, mix up some mocktails, and have yourself a bathtub beach party. I usually don’t get out the big camera for these, because I like to be in the moment with the girls, but since it was Junie’s introduction to the tradition, I thought I’d snap a few pics. In yo face, winter.
Next up, Spring, and all its rainy, stormy glory. You’ll find us stomping in puddles and dancing in the streets. I do hope you’ll join us.
