Winter is my absolute favorite season. It’s cold and dark and such, but there’s so much more to winter than you think:
The holiday season spent with family or friends
The first snowfall that actually stays around
When it’s snowy at night, but it’s still lightish outside.
That quiet snowfall that makes you feel small
Jumping into a pile of snow
The crazy blizzard when you have nothing to do all day (except ski pow or have a movie marathon)
Going to bed at 5 pm is totally acceptable.
And watching the sunrise at 8 am.
Endless hot cocoa (and peppermint schnapps)
Bundling up on the couch with a soft blanket
Using a heating pad to warm your sheets before getting into bed
When it’s a cold sunny day and you feel the warmth of the sun on your face.
Soup for dayyyyyys
Holding a hot beverage in your hands
Not having to do yardwork
Getting a good workout with snow shoveling
When you get a face shot skiing and it’s so good you have to let out a “woop woop” and you almost choke on snow.
Being frozen shredding all day, then thawing out at home
Passing tf out on the way home from the hill
Realizing that the best season is always the season that you’re in right now.
