Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
It finally happened! We got to miss out on a blizzard by living in Florida!
You would have thought that I was trapped in a blizzard, the way that I hung out on the couch having a lazy pajama day, but we were actually enjoying the warmth of the south today. No, today we were not piling on twelve layers in order to walk the dogs. We were not shoveling for hours as the snow continued to fall. There were no cute pictures of my sisters making snowmen on the deck, or posts to social media about how many inches had piled up. It was wonderful!
Even though we didn't actually experience any snow, I think that we were all in the state of mind of having a snow day anyway. We ran out of milk? My mom said we could go to the store when the snow stopped. I went in the backyard to walk my dog (in slippers and pajama pants, mind you), and I mentioned how it smelled like snow. We were all out of our comfort zone a little, I think.
We did spend the day looking at pictures on Facebook that friends and family had posted of the blizzard. We thought it was so funny to see the pattern that the storm had taken. One half of a town was covered in snow, while the other half had barely gotten any flurries. It was very strange, but we loved looking at the pictures of everyone enjoying the magic of newly fallen snow.
We also spent some of the day enjoying the karaoke machine that we found the other day. We've been here for six months and we keep finding belongings that had been misplaced in the move. I sang a bit while my mom had a dance party with my little sisters. The middle kids had no interest in joining in, unfortunately, as they were too distracted by electronics, but what can you do? At least everyone enjoyed our non-snow day.
It was definitely weird to think about the fact that we were so far away from the blizzard. Are we ever going to see snow again? I mean, we moved to Florida because we couldn't bear the extremely cold New York winters anymore. Why would we go back again during the time of year when it would snow? Of course we don't know what the future holds, but it's strange to think that we won't ever have a snow day again.
I hope that everyone who is still up north made it through the snow day okay... Be careful out there!
Thank you so much for your continued support! I look forward to sharing more stories about my experience with foster care, and hopefully hearing from readers who have questions or similar stories to share. I'm always willing to answer questions and hear about other experiences! Please don't forget to like and share my Facebook author page as well!
I’d greatly appreciate it if you would share this blog with friends and family through your favorite social media sites. If you’re sharing on Twitter, don’t forget to tag me (@TayTayK02) and use the hashtag #TaylorTalks.
My family has been doing foster care since I was three years old. I'm the only biological child in my family, though I now have five permanent siblings. Having nineteen siblings over the course of my lifetime has been an incredible experience, and I'm hoping that by sharing some of the ups and downs of being the only bio kid in a foster family, other foster families or people looking into doing foster care will be able to learn a bit of what life can be like. I also like to share what life is like on my journey to becoming a published author, as well as where my schooling and career choice are taking me.
