I’m easing back into the whole blogging thing, so let’s start with something simple. Here are a few things that happen when the cold hits that I adore and I’m sure I can’t be the only one…
All kinds of toques. In all of the colours. I’m never washing my hair again.
2. SOUP (!!) is suddenly cool
I love that as soon as winter starts, my grocery bill goes down by like 40%. $1 Habitant Minestrone in those big yellow tins and fresh scones from Cobs Bread & I’ll be good until April.
3. Saturdays are now lazy
There is nothing better. I’ve only started this recently. I used to be so caught up in the idea of productivity; making sure I was always moving forward. I didn’t realize I was actually being counter-productive in doing so, but this is material for another blog on another day. I’m happy to take one day a week to do absolutely nothing (thank you, J).
4. Christmas parties all the time
An excuse to indulge, see the friends I am truly so grateful for, and exchange a few gifts -sounds like the perfect evening to me! The holiday season is in full swing and there are new memories to be made.
5. Holiday treats at the office
Everyone brings in something. It’s rude if you don’t eat it, right?
6. More time to relax/unwind/ spend with family
Although many of us are still busy with work and social calendars, at least we know there is a bit of a slow down as we approach the holidays. Almost anything can be blamed on “it’s the holidays.”
I’m so looking forward to spending time with my family and getting a chance to read all of the books I’m (hopefully) getting for Christmas!!
I can’t stop buying them #sorrynotsorry.
8. The Toronto Christmas Market
I’m still a sucker for the market. I think it’s a magical place – where December IS the most wonderful time of the year! Or maybe it’s just the mulled wine…
9. A feeling that change is coming
New Year’s is just around the corner and it’s got me thinking about what I’ve done in 2016 and what I want to accomplish in 2017. There are many things I need to improve on, but have a good feeling about 2017!
Good things are coming. Sending you all positive vibes!
Love always, Rae,
