Linking up with Jenna!
I’ve been reading lately from so many people that they hate winter/January/February/the-time-between-New-Years-and-spring. To be honest, I just don’t get the hate! I love winter. It is (usually) my favorite season, and made even better when snow decides to make a regular appearance (still waiting for that rain to turn into snow here...). I find that there is so much about this time that I enjoy, so here are my #5Faves about this post-holiday, pre-Spring time of year (also known as January and February... and sometimes March... and depending on where you live, April too).
...and I'm all:
I love me some snow days. Maybe I'll change my mind someday if I have kids, but for now, I have a love-love-LOVE relationship with snow. We haven't gotten much snow here this season, but we've been known to get an unexpected blizzard or two or three in February, so I haven't given up hope yet. Snow just takes me back to childhood, when I'd wake up to the world blanketed in white. Building a snowman and making a fort to have a snowball fight with your friends down the street and making snow angels and getting snow in crevices of your body you didn’t even know you had and then finishing it all off with a nice hot mug of hot chocolate! I know you remember those days too, and I bet you one snow angel that you remember them fondly!
Federal holidays, anyone? So this most likely doesn’t apply to those who stay at home or who work a retail or customer service job, but this is our prime season of federal holidays at work. New Year’s Day, MLK Day, President’s Day… this time of year ends a long string of holidays off that started in September, until we go into the long haul of post-President’s Day to Memorial Day. It’s a long three months of no holidays. Real long.
I love bubble baths - rub a dub dub, just me in the tub. I enjoy a glass of wine and a good book or Amazon Prime while I'm soaking along. Nothing feels quite like soaking in some hot suds when it's cold outside, which is why winter is amazing. You just can't enjoy a nice long bubble bath in the heat of not-winter like you can while it's cold outside!
What do you love about this post-holiday, pre-spring time of year?
