As we all start to adjust to the time change, it's no surprise that those chilly winter months are fast approaching. The sun sets earlier, the air begins to feel icy, and the seasonal depression sets in hard causing all of us to spend more time inside our homes.

I will be the first to admit that I have never been a winter person. I love my sunshine and warm temps. But as a midwesterner, I have no choice but to endure the winter season with its treacherous ice, slick roads, and seemingly neverending overcast. As much as I wish we could skip January and February (December gets a free pass because of Christmas, of course), the colder weather can have its perks when enjoying all things cozy in the warmth of our own homes.

When it's cold outside, nothing beats throwing on a fuzzy pair of socks and wrapping yourself in a soft blanket to enjoy a warm beverage in front of a fire. I definitely put my extensive mug collection to good use in the colder months.
