I will be the first to admit that I love Summer and the Warmth. I mean who doesn’t? It seems once Christmas is over, the cold drags on and on. I have to admit, I do love the sun shining no matter if it’s hot or cold. It always seems to brighten the day. I am one that loves to keep myself busy through the cold months, and it is a great excuse to get things done that have been on your list for quite sometime. The pantry needing cleaned out, or a closet purge is always great. I also have some great rituals that I do during the winter months that make the cold all that much better. I’ve always been a book worm. I have a loft upstairs that is only dedicated to my reading time because I’m the only one that uses it. I’ve made that loft quite comfy and peaceful, so it’s great to sit down and read a good book. I think I have completed three books since January 1st, so that tells you how much my nose is in a good book. Did I mention that having a good nice glass of pinot with that book is even better. When I’m not reading or organizing, I absolutely love watching a good movie with my family. They seem to be home less and less, but when they are, I’m taking advantage of it.
We also love having good dinners at home. I have been cooking a lot lately, that is when my husband isn’t. I’ve been experimenting with different flavors and foods, and it’s been fun. I absolutely love yoga and working out, so that is my go to every day. Hot yoga literally makes me feel like a million dollars. It is such a great workout, and even better walking in to a warm room when its super cold out. We do love to travel too. We always try to find time to get to a warmer destination. It’s a tad hard with my kids schedules, but just getting away for 4 days is such a great escape. Well I hope that you have rituals to help you get through these frigid months. Want to share them?
