It’s been chilly here and I’ve been loving having my moments of peace when I wake up in the morning before everyone else, watch the snow sprinkle down, and enjoy a mug for myself. This little amount of time where I get to pause everything and look around – sometimes 10 minutes, sometimes a full hour – makes me appreciate having all four seasons here, something I sometimes take for granted during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.
