It's heeeeere. Winter, that is. In my neck of the woods any way. The cons: icy roads, -30 degree temperatures (already, I kid you not!), having to start my car ten minutes before I want to go anywhere, people driving 30 km an hour which takes you twice as long to get anywhere, not wanting to venture outside because the cold air literally takes your breath away, going to work in the dark and coming home from work in the dark, frozen fingers and toes that feel like they'll fall off at any minute, runny noses. The Pro's: CHRISTMAS, rich hot chocolate overflowing with whipped cream topping, cuddling, staying in bed all day because it's too cozy to get out of, snow ball fights, gingerbread scented candles, holiday baking, reading a good book next to the fireplace and the Fashion of course - chunky knits, cozy cardigans, shearling, sexy thigh high boots, faux fur collars, camel-colored capes, I could go on and on. Oh, and snuggling up to this little stinker:

I'm actually surprised that I'm feeling little bit optimistic about Winter having arrived. I haven't cursed Mother Nature like I usually do when it snows and the mercury dips way too low. (Seriously, you wouldn't believe just how cold it gets where I live.) I have to admit the fresh snow draped over the trees is extremely beautiful and I love coming home after a long day at work and wrapping myself in a warm blanket with a cup of tea and watching a movie with D. Plus Christmas is my favorite time of the year and it's just around the corner. There's something about Winter that is kind of comforting to me.
I hope you're all having a great week! We're halfway to the weekend!!
