The husband and I have been really taking in this whole holiday season. We’ve stepped back a bit and just allowed ourselves to enjoy the family, the ambiance and the spirit of the season. The weather has been far from seasonal… as we’re still enjoying 70+ degree days… and it’s the end of December! But that’s okay, I’m learning that some of the best memories are made when things don’t go as expected.
I used to dread the winter. Frigid temperatures and long warm up times, just wasn’t my thing. As I get a little older, I’m falling in love with mild winters. I like it when it’s just cool enough to embrace boots, scarves and dressing in layers, but not too cold. Now I find myself looking forward to it – the cool breezes, bare trees, creative holiday décor and all the comfort food you can enjoy. Oh, and let’s not forget eggnog lattes… they’re the icing on the cake.
