So Winter - Wanna be friends??

Pin It
Ahhh Winter you are creeping up on us fast. In fact one could be mistaken for thinking you have shown up to the party early.

There is so much to love about Winter if you know where to look - COME ON! I'm Trying here!

The truth be known, Winter and I don't really get on much, but this year I'm trying very hard to make peace and be friends. I am willing to try and forgive Winter for all the nasty things it brings every year, like achy knees (no I'm not 70!), snotty noses and porno nipples. My hubby happens to like the high beam look, but it doesn't really work for the school drop off in my opinion.

Actually the one thing I really don't like about Winter is the cold weather ..... which when you think about it is kinda like saying I like Fish and Chips but I don't really like fish, or I love a Vodka and lime but I'm not really big on Vodka or lime....which is soooo just a play on words cause we all know I am devoted to my friend V right? Right!

So in my attempt to reignite that spark (pftttt like it ever really existed) I have been trawling Pinterest for some Winter Inspiration to set the mood. It has kind of worked, but I'll take one hot sunny summer if your buying.

In the meantime let's ponder some of the good things Winter brings .....

Cause pretty letters and candles make everything better and it is so practical to block the staircase with a candlelight display. Awwww dang it, it is cute!

And we will totally put up with the freezing cold Alfresco dining if there are lots of candles.

There you go, now I am almost looking forward to winter.... almost!
Tell me - do you embrace Winter or hide from it like me?
