I’ve been a bit melancholy lately.
I’m not sure why exactly, but I’d say it might be a combination of the changing of the seasons, the weather getting progressively colder and knowing that winter is coming. That, and the fact it doesn’t get light until mid to late morning and it gets dark before dinner.
It’s no secret I hate winter, and it seems like everywhere I look lately, life is full of reminders of warm places, of our life in Hawaii, and of a winter free of snow. A winter where I could wear my TOMS and never get frostbite. It’s like fate is taunting me as Mother Nature slowly blows in.
I am trying my hardest to embrace the changing seasons and I really do 100% adore this time of year. I LOVE Christmas and everything that goes along with this season. Despite trying my hardest, I have caught myself feeling a little bit blue lately.
This past weekend over Thanksgiving, my family went to cut down a tree like we’ve done for the last few years. Dressed in boots, my amazing winter jacket rated for way below zero, and mittens, I found a little slice of sunshine, even if it was only metaphorically. Time with family, and big belly laughs brightened my spirits and reminded me that yes, winter is coming but this too shall pass.
