a slower life…

I love the forced slowing down that happens during the winter months. How everyone burrows into their homes. Days that are perfect for curling up under a throw blanket and devouring that book that’s been waiting patiently during the warmer, outside months.

Sure, we all have to get out and brave the cold occasionally. But the warmth of our homes are felt much deeper when we return to its cozy embrace.

Winter months are good for
trying out new recipes…
crocheting…
watching movies…
writing…
reading…
lighting all the candles in the house – just because…
…and lazing around in good conversation with someone you love.

Maybe it’s because I tend to prefer hot food over cold. Maybe it’s because I feel at home in the comfortable clothes that are chosen during the winter months. Whatever the reason, I am enjoying the serene quietness felt during the cold month of January.

Nature forces us to slow down and reflect. Slow down and re-evaluate. Slow down and truly see.

I hope you are warm and cozy tonight…
