I love winter p.e.r.i.o.d! The thing that I just love about living in Chicago is that we experience 4 season.
I know lots of you live where you never get snow.
I can't imagine that.
I always pray for a white Christmas.
(OK, I mentioned Christmas. I know I just declared that I'm not skipping over Thanksgiving. However, this is a post about winter...cut a girl some slack.)
I love the silence that snow brings with it.
When I walk the dog(which by the way....my dog loves snow)after a heavy snow everything is so quiet.
I can only hear my footsteps and the occasional car driving by.
Oh, yeah, I can also hear Bradley's laughter.
He loves a good snowfall.
He smells sooo good after he's been outside in the snow for awhile.
It is different from the summer smell.
Man, was that a ramble....THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE~
There is also something about a fire in the fireplace.
I guess, opposed to a fire somewhere else.
Not sure why I needed to clarify that.
Man, am I struggling here to stay on topic :)
I love the light a fireplace gives off when all the other lights are turned off.
owever, that does not apply if it is during the day.
Daylight kinda ruins the whole fireplace glow thing.
I also adore accessories that keep me warm and toasty.
This year I have already bought a pair of fingerless gloves.
*warning....do not use these while playing in the snow....not very effective*
I just thought this photo was so damn funny that I had to put it up on the Maisy Report. I was looking for a cute hat and came across this.
I just couldn't help myself.
Have I mentioned that I have self control issues?
If not...well, now ya know.
Seriously, who the hell would wear that?
*disclaimer....if you own this hat or a hat similar I'm sorry for offending you* Now, I must get going.....I need to get some shopping done to winterize Maisy.
