Winter. Whether you love it or hate it, there’s no doubt about it, winter comes around every year.
That is unless you can fly to the other side of the world each year to avoid it. But, that’s not really an option for most of us.
Personally, I’m a fan of winter.
I love the coziness, the comfort food, and the beauty of nature during the colder months.
Though to be honest, I find something to love about every season.
I try my best to make the most of whatever season it is because, well, life is just more fun that way. The seasons will come, and the seasons will go, and I don’t see any point railing against nature.
Do you need a little reminder of the joys of winter?
