Winter? Eh. I mean… yay?

December is here! The mild Nov. we’ve been experiencing in my area is gone, and the weather is supposed to get chilly and icy. I enjoyed snow in the winter when the possibility existed that school could be cancelled. Now that I’m a grown up, winter sucks.

Some people like the cold and how pretty things look covered in snow, but not me. I’m from the Midwest, and I don’t mind life on the coast at all. The temperate in the southern climate where I reside part of the year gets colder but doesn’t even require a heavy jacket.

Except I’m back in the Midwest for the holidays. Seeing my family is worth it, but I’m still going to complain about the snow. I don’t know what Ari’s thinking. Screw winter things, I want to be back there where it’s warm.

Okay, now that I’ve been a Grinch, there has to be some bright sides to the winter. Let’s see…

Hot Chocolate


Apparently this one’s healthy, if you’re into that kinda of thing.



Mmm, cozy. And sometimes the person wearing the sweater can enhance the product.

Snow Forts


Okay, I’ve never built a successful one, but they’re still damn cool.

Twinkle Lights


I chose this picture as a reminder that twinkle lights are not exclusive to the winter season. They’re an anytime decoration. And because it’s pretty.

An Excuse to Stay Inside


Alright, this might be my favorite thing about cold weather. Nothing’s better than bunking down in a warm bed with a good book.

What are your favorite and least favorite parts of winter?

    It is very cold here today in Ireland with snow in some places. I am thankful to be warm with enough food in my cupboards. I can watch the birds feeding on the food I have hung in my garden…

    Watching the birds while warm and toasty inside sounds nice. It hasn’t snowed here yet, and I want it to stay that way for as long as possible!
