6 Things I Like About Winter

I can't believe I'm singing winter's praises, especially when the temperature plummeted about 30 degrees last night, but there are a few things that I do like about the winter season.

Cozy fires

Cocktails by the fire are nice too...
not to mention flannel pj's and fuzzy socks...
and blankets too!

 It *is* really pretty!
You've got to admit....
I even usually like shoveling, it burns a lot of calories and I can forego my workout on shoveling days.

 There were some crazy long icicles this year.
Some hanging from the top of our house and
some hanging under the deck.

It's nice to wear a warm, fuzzy sweater on cold days.

There's Christmas 
(and Hanukkah,most years)
New Year's Eve
Valentine's Day
and even St. Patrick's Day falls in winter.
Check out our Irish Night Party here.

I became a mom in the month of February and it's always nice to have that birthday to look forward to  and that party to plan to each year. Now, said birthday girl is off to college but her break worked out this year to celebrate with us.

Hey winter, it's been fun but I'm over you and ready for spring!

Those are a lot of great reasons to love winter! We definitely had our fair share of winter here....well at least by TX standards! Have a great weekend!

I love this list of reasons to love winter!

I think my favorite are the holidays and the clothes and the snow (man do I miss the snow!) Its my first year with a fireplace, but that's quickly becoming one of my favorites too!

I do love winter, it is so cozy! But I definitely don't have as long of a winter here in the South. :( Fires, soup, blankets, movie nights with the fam - all great things about winter time!

I love to cross country ski. So winter is a fave of mine. I think it is beautiful too.
I am READY for spring, this winter was hard...cold, cold, cold here in Northwest Wisconsin.

Love that coaster sitting under your glass of wine. You DO make winter look beautiful, but I am still happy it's almost Spring. Here's to hoping we get through this week without any snow :)

Becky said...

I would have to agree with you on every single one! Even beginning a mom in February :)

Dawn said...

Hmm ... You make winter sound ALMOST bearable! There is nothing like a cozy fireplace!
