Winter Mood Board.

Hello to one and all reading this! Okay, I feel like a jolly 50-year old British man whenever I say that.

I hope you had a kickass week and a relaxing weekend ahead of you. A long weekend begins here in the US from today evening, so that means three good days of spending time together for my husband and I. What about y’all? Drop it like its hot in the comments section below. (Wow, I tried so hard to sound cool there.)

There are just a few things that I like about winters, and no, the ass-freezing cold isn’t one of them. I’m sure there are a majority of you here who would rather stay home rather than becoming a walking icebox outdoors. So instead of chattering your teeth off in the numbing cold, settle indoors and give this a read. πŸ˜‰

Winter can be summarized in one dominant feeling- coziness.

It is characterized by hygge, the holidays and family time, comfort food, and more. But to me, there are a few images and feelings that I consistently associate with winter. And so, I thought, let’s collect all of them into a ‘mood board’ blog post.

This winter mood board has pictures from my own day-to-day life. I’m sure you can definitely identify with a few or most of them. πŸ™‚
