Boy, do I love winter! Am I the only one that likes the colder weather? Honestly, all summer I have been in agony with the warmth and the heat I couldn’t wait to have a calmer, chillier weather so I can sip on hot coffees. Summer is cool, yes. You get to go to the beach, drink iced coffees and wear pretty dresses with sandals. Ok, these were actually the best parts. But coming home all sweating from the heat and even indoors, with no air conditioner, I was melting and could not get myself to do anyhing but waiting for the day to end so the weather would get a bit less warm. What I actually prefer is to have colder, drier weather – so I am not a fan of rainy fall days actually. Having some snow can make it prettier too (ok, I guess NYC looks good no matter what…).
Why do I love Winter?
When it’s cold outside, drinking hot beverages is so much better. Seriously, how can you not enjoy drinking a hot coffee or hot chocolate and let it warm your body up?
How about cozy oversized comfy clothes? Outdoors and indoors! Think chunky sweaters, huge scarves, soft sweatpants, big fuzzy socks, and ugly Christmas sweaters. Seriously, now how can one not love winter?
There is an intense commercialisation of Christmas, yes, but I love how people get cheery and excited for holidays, I love how the streets are decorated with pretty lights, the special hot drinks and foods, the magical snowy weather. Just a time that is kind of forcing us to spend time with our family and it makes us realise it’s actually nice 😀
How do you feel about winter? Have you gotten yet your cosy outfits?
