Tis The Season

Well, the holidays are upon us and with them comes colder weather.  Living in Texas, we really only have two seasons: Hot and Cold.  Of course, being a true Southern girl, I have never really cared for cold weather.  I can never get warm enough, my skin gets dry and chapped and I never seem to get around to buying a really cute coat.

Winter’s saving grace for me is really the fact that it encompasses my two favorite holidays,  Thanksgiving and Christmas, but there are other things that I do truly love about fall and winter as well.

I love the sound of crunching leaves under your feet.

I love roaring fireplaces.

I love the spicy smell of cinnamon, clove and ginger that wafts out of kitchens.

I love that there is an excuse to bake as much as you want.

I love shopping for new Christmas tree ornaments.

I love hanging out in jammies and fuzzy socks on Thanksgiving and Christmas morning.

I love hot chocolate spiked with peppermint schnapps.

I love having an excuse to bust out the flannel sheets and huge fluffy down comforter.

I love chunky sweaters and fuzzy boots.

I love love love putting up the Christmas tree.  It’s the highlight of the holiday season for me.

What is your favorite part of colder weather?
