Think Happy Thoughts

It's cold and grey outside.  I really hate being cold.  Like really, really hate it.  It makes getting out of bed harder.  It makes leaving the house for work harder.  It gets dark early at night so all I want to do is curl up on the couch and be warm and lazy.  Today, since it's waaaaaaaay to early in the season to start having the winter blues (SAD), I'm focusing on the things that come with winter that I do enjoy.

  • Cute scarves, mittens, hats
  • Fires in fireplaces
  • Hot chocolate
  • Thanksgiving
  • Getting to see family
  • Christmas
  • Christmas decorations
  • Christmas programs
  • Driving tours to look at Christmas lights
  • Christmas Eve at my parents' house
  • Birthday cake (four family birthdays)
  • Boots with leggings
  • Presents (getting and giving)
  • Chili and soup
  • Turtlenecks
  • Movie nights
  • New Year's Eve parties
  • Dirty Santa with friends
  • Trips to IN
  • Peanut brittle
  • Quiet work days
  • Snow days (a girl can dream)

What am I missing?  I know there is so much more.  What do you look forward to most about the winter season?
