My Favourite Things About Late Winter

It’s easy to see late Winter as one of the dreariest times of year, and I hear you on that. It’s cold, we’re all kinda broke and feeling the weight of our failing resolutions, there’s no promise of shiny Christmas on the horizon and summer is still months away. All that is true, but there are some truly magical things about late winter.

Frosty, misty mornings.

Thick knit sweaters and long snuggly scarves.

The first coffee of the morning, and when you step outside and the steam from the coffee mingles with the steam from your breath.

Thick soups, slow cooker stews, roast dinners.

Cosy slippers.

Catching sunrises and sunsets in waking hours.

Watching snow fall from the window.

Windy beach walks.

Reading by roaring log fires.

Sunday afternoons spent cosied up in the local pub.

Adding extra blankets and cushions to the bed, to create a cosy nest.

Crispy leaves, fallen pine cones, snow on evergreens.

Keeping the indoor jungle thriving.

Pots of tea shared with friends.

Early evenings in candlelight glow.
