A Childhood Memory


Sooooo I could be copywriting my own work? My 12th grade English teacher had so many things to say about copywriting but this is a memory that is dear to me that I wanted to share.

In Oregon, the snow can fall all winter long, bringing both excitement when it does and disappointment when it doesn't. A snow storm hit in 2008 right after winter break, which meant we were fortunate enough to get a couple more days off school. For a few days it snowed, followed by a light rain which turned the snow into ice on the ground like a blanket over a bed. I remember the excitement that storm brought and with it the fond memories of playing with my best friend, Taylor. We had a great time making snowmen, giggling at the sound of fragile ice being stepped on, and sledding down the icy driveway. The sleighs we used was the type you would see in black and white classic movies; the old ones made of wood with metal rims.  Wind prickled my face as I zoomed down the ice covered driveway with Taylor sitting behind me with her arms wrapped around my waist, screaming for me to stop at the bottom, and praying for us to be alive to endure another ride down the hill on the sleigh. Sledding was the highlight of that week. As much fun as it was playing outside we were eager to gather with friends and family in the coziness of a house warmed by the fireplace. Taylor and I spent time sneaking cookies into our pockets, drinking excessive amounts of hot chocolate, and dancing to Christmas music with full tummies. To add to the joyous feelings we were experiencing, the thought of not getting up early the next day to go to school was like the frosting on a cake.
