The days are getting longer, but the cold and gray days persist. It will be some time before we feel the breath of Spring. This time of year I pull out some tricks that get me through and I want to share them with you.
Get outside: I bought Carhartt bib overalls this year. They have been game changers! I am not afraid to go outside to get a better look at the sunrise, or walk the dogs knowing that I will be comfortable and sometimes even too warm - imagine that! Venturing into the winter has allowed me befriend the season rather than considering it my enemy.
Light candles: the warmth of the flame, the scent of the wax, the dancing of the wick are enchanting. If you have a fireplace - even better! Gaze into the fire and merge with it - temporary, all encompassing warmth. Enjoy!
Bake some treats: try a new recipe from Pinterest and fill your space with warm, inviting smells. Take some of the bounty to friends or to work to share the love.
Organize your spring and summer clothes: the act of bringing these items out into the light, trying them on, checking for missing buttons or torn seams makes warm weather seem a little closer!
Have a gathering: even a small gathering with several friends will bring life and light into the cold days. Try a theme gathering such as a Vision Board event, a painting party or game night. It will be a welcome relief from the mundane and so much fun!
Spring will be here eventually, and every day until that time is an opportunity to grow, learn, connect and love!
