As fall winds down, have you thought about reasons to look forward to winter? Winter is really fast approaching and there is no way to get away from it. If you are like me, you are waiting impatiently for this time of year, every year. The warm and cozy clothes, comforting scents, frosty weather and holiday music – all these little winter things make me happy. And now I would really love to share with you a couple of my own reasons why I can’t wait for winter.
Gentle, comfortable materials; great military cuts and fitted lines; oh, boy! Happiness in my heart! Curve-huggin’, form-fittin’ things mixed up with cotton warm pieces. I am looking forward all year to take them out of wardrobe. If you are really like me and enjoy winter clothes and frosty weather then you know why this stands first on my list of reasons to look forward to winter this year!
2. Pumpkin spiced everything
To my mind every season has its own sophisticated scent. Spring for me is red nectar flower, summer is clean linen, and winter is pumpkin spice. Definitely, it’s divine to me. And it is almost everywhere; from drawer sachets and pastries to coffee air freshner… it is nearly inevitable. Fortunately, it’s my best fall reminder: spicy, fruity and warm.
3. Cuddle time
I agree, that any time of the day, night or year is great for cuddle time. But on a cold winter night I want tender hugs and cuddling closer and longer with the Mr. Warm kisses to heat up the evening, peculiarly when the temps go down. That’s why, this winter don’t look for your pajamas; cheer up the evening with a little bit of spice and heat.
4. Comfort food
If you are following my post and have read about my summer bucket list, then you already know I like to cook. In addition, my skills need a slight work, when I cook. My preferences are baked goods like Snickerdoodles (love that name) and stews (for example, Beef Bourguignon). These are warm foods prepared in hot ovens for cold nights. Inspire your favorite place with a cozy winter delight.
In general, I am fond of boots most of the year. But I do not have an opportunity to wear them often, as I live in a tropical climate. Putting on boots with a pair of tights or jeans and a skirt are a reason why I am waiting for winter. You completely value the feel as well as the look, as it’s only once a year when you can wear them.
6. Holiday music!
Let is snow, let it snow… and other wonderful holiday music! As for me, really, all that begins with Halloween music and Charlie Brown Thanksgiving Specials. I can listen to the soundtrack and watch A Nightmare Before Christmas, but it is peculiarly specific after the winter solstice. The atmosphere that comes with music definitely cheers up the season!
7. Crisp air, brisk walks
Finally, crisp air and brisk walks are cheering up. I just love this quick weather variation from days and nights on the end of heat and dampness to frosty nights and cool mornings. It is wonderful to wake up to fresh and cool morning air. Winter makes me feel alive, it awakes me from my summer heat coma; moreover, it reminds me there is a lot to do!
Winter is coming soon, and I am ready! “Mr. Oogie Boogie Man” yelling in the background and hot pumpkin spiced latte in hand. Give it to me, now! Are you waiting for the season change? What are your reasons to look forward to winter? Please, share them!
