Winter Specials

I'm not a fan of cold weather. My lips actually turn blue if I'm in the cold for too long so give me some sun and warmth any day of the year. But there are certain things that I absolutely adore about winter. So instead of fretting about the weather and complaining about the cold, I'm writing some reminders of how wonderful the cold weather actually is.

♥ Snuggling under a cozy knit blanket with a cup of cocoa and a good movie. 

♥ Finally making my way through my "summer reading."

♥ Layering clothes! Finally those dresses are appropriate for the office with pair of tights and a cardigan.

♥ Wrapping myself in scarves and cuffs!

♥ Breaking out the cozy sweaters.

♥ Sneaking a warm cup of coffee and a blanket into the movie theater and watching all of the Oscar contenders battle it out. 

♥ The thing I love the most is slowly sipping my coffee while warming my hands against the cup.
