For the Love of Friday

For the Love of Friday – Dear Winter

Dear Winter,

You are coming soon and sometimes that makes me feel blue.  Because you are cold, and I will miss the fall. However, I still love you because you allow me to do lots of things that I enjoy.  For example, I LOVE to wear winter clothes.  I will wear the same outfit of tan riding boots, black tights, dress (which doesn’t really matter because it will just be covered), and cream peacoat out for weeks on end with no shame.  Because it is cute every single time.  I enjoy this so much that in fact I am sad when it comes time for spring and I can no longer wear this uniform.

Winter, I also love that you allow me to sit in front of a fire with a big mug of hot chocolate and a good book.  I love to sit so close to the fire that I ALMOST burn my toes.  Meg and I used to look forward to every Thanksgiving and Christmas growing up because our dad would make a fire in our wood burning fireplace.  That was the only time it was allowed because it was such a pain.  Now we can just turn on the switch and it is marvelous.

Lastly, SNOW!!!!  I love snow.  We only get it once or twice a year and it is truly magical every time.  I love stepping outside to feel like I just stepped out of the wardrobe and into Narnia.

Where is this place?  I feel like I need to live there.

What do you guys love best about winter?

Happy Friday!!

Colleen

 

P.S. Obvs I love Christmas.  It is my super favorite.  Don’t you worry your pretty little heads because we will start Christmasing the day after Thanksgiving.

    Roo, you need to head on over to Fresh Market and pick up some of their mulling spices and dump them in some Murray’s cider over the stove. It is quite a delight.

    Yum! Apple cider!

    The holidays and Christmas music are my number one reason I love winter. The second reason I love winter is because I LOVE having an excuse to do nothing but snuggle under a blanket for an entire Saturday!

    Yall are still forgetting that it is cold as banana britches outside during the winter, and that is never a good thing, especially when I have to work in it….the possibility of snow and the holidays are the only good things….bah humbug

    I love the war that is waged each year between a certain Jigsaw Puzzle and any combatant that dares approach it!

    I love winter because I like the clothes!! I also enjoy the snow but NO ice. The food is great!!! I love all the sweets!!!

    My favorite thing about winter is snow and fires. I also love the smell outside when it’s bone chillingly cold and there is no humidity. Which brings me to my next joy, which is good hair. My hair looks awful in the summer time and great during winter due to the lack of humidity. I also love soups.

    These are all excellent winter considerations. Some of which I never even thought of myself. Soup, yes. Good hair, yes. Good food, yes. Puzzles, yes. I say yes.
