I’m seeing all the snow day pictures from my friends and family in the south, and pining for that snow day feeling here in Northern California. There are things that I do not miss about the wintery weather, for sure: scraping the frost layer off the windshield, tires sliding on ice, frozen pipes, and a few other etceteras. But there really is no better feeling than waking up thinking you’re heading into a typical day, looking out the window and seeing the trees, street and cars with a pillow top of fluffy white snow! Real life just gets cancelled. If you’re all stocked up on hot chocolate, chili ingredients, art supplies and ok, sure a bit of wine and whiskey: it’s pure bliss to hunker down and read fun books, nap and make things in between sledding runs. So cozy!
