Winter is honestly one of my favorite seasons! Growing up as a California girl, I never thought I would say that. I am still a beach bum at heart but I love winter! I really really do! There are so many things to love!
~ Snow! How can you not like snow?! I mean if you don’t ski or like to be outside I can see why you don’t like snow. I am not one of those people. I love to ski and play outside with my huskies in the snow! I love hiking in the snow. (Not ice) It is so beautiful and light and fluffy! It makes everything look so magical! I cannot get enough of it. I was ready for snow in July. I am such a weirdo.
~ The smells. Wintertime brings with it all the Christmas smells. Cinnamon, pine, frosting, firewood, wool, snow. All of them are such great smells! Wintertime is baking season in our house. TJ bakes more bread and more cookies. I bake pastries and occasionally another dessert. I tend to leave the baking to him! 😛 The smells are just so comforting!
~ Christmas! I am obsessed with Christmas! I love it a lot. I have been desperately trying to behave and not put out Christmas decorations too early or listen to Christmas music too early. It has been so hard! I love them so much! I love putting up a Christmas tree! The songs, the movies, the presents. I love giving gifts! Remembering the real reason for the season! Its all wonderful!
This year I am aiming to not be so stressed out during the holiday season. I am still in retail and that will make it difficult but I am aiming to end the year as stress free as possible!
Enjoy this season! Don’t stress about it!
