Ode to Winter

As much as we spend all year longing for the summer, there is something I’m going to miss about these colder months.

The smell of a burning wood fire keeping someone cozy and warm.
Curling up with a good book and a blanket.
Kicking back with a delicious winter warmer meal.
Hearing the rain pitter patter outside, knowing your are warm and safe indoors.
Snuggling up in bed with no need to got outside.

You gotta admit. Winter has its perks!

Here are some pictures of what I love about the season, and makes me long for winter all year round.snow tree tunnel

Don’t get me wrong summer has it’s perks for sure (fruit and vegetables) but I love being warm inside when it’s freezing outside, I look forward to apples and pumpkins and crisp cool air. Love the photo’s, makes me happy!

  2. This is such a gorgeous post Becca! You are so right, there are heaps of things to love about winter. In fact, I’m curled up on the couch in a blanket right now, cosy and warm… soon it’s going to be hot consistently and I’ll miss these cold mornings and nights snuggled in front of the TV. Thanks for the recipe links. Yum! Hugs to you beautiful!! xx

    • thank-you! 🙂

      oooo that sounds like a winter perfect meal!! yum!

  4. So odd to be looking at these pictures while we are still in summer mode in this hemisphere – rather than reminiscing, it’s making me look forward to the {nice} parts of winter: a warm drink, a hot fire, a cozy blanket, and a good book. 🙂 Here’s to your upcoming summer!

    • oooo yes! lucky you! 🙂
      a white christmas i hope?

      it should be great! summer + complete freedom + ice-cream + beach = pure excitement 😛

  5. For the first time ever I am actually excited for winter. My husband and I are currently living in Germany. This year will be our first winter here. I am so looking forward to the Christmas markets. Hot tea. Snuggly scarves. It gives my the warm-fuzzies just thinking about it.

    • ahh you’ve hit the nail on the head!! your winter sounds dreammy 🙂 and in Germany – how beautiful!
      and those Christmas markets – i would love to see photos!
      have a great one! 😀
