I have got to re-up my supply of long underwear because it is getting cold. And dark. So dark. So cold.
Last Winter, I felt trapped in the house by pregnancy, a rather unruly toddler, and the icy horror show that was once my sidewalk. At the end of January I had my baby, it seemed like our cabin fever was about to break, and then we had a FOREVER WINTER. I love the North and I love Winter, but it was too much.
My goal for this Winter is to get some time outside every day it isn’t below 10… Okay, maybe 20… If it is above freezing we’re definitely spending time outside.
We are going to suit up. I am getting warm winter gear in order for the whole family– Related note, legit baby snow boots (not decorative booties) are not super easy to come by. I’d love to get a toboggan and take the kiddos for rides. Maybe go snowshoeing. This year we reclaim Winter for our family.
I really want to enjoy this season because it can be very grey if you let it, and it does last a very long time even when it isn’t pushing itself into May. Besides, Winter has a lot of good in it, too. Say it with me, “Twinkle lights, blankets, and cocoa! Twinkle lights, blankets, and cocoa!”
