So everybody lets be honest:

I hate winter.

A lot.

I think everyone does. And if they don’t, they should. It’s dreary and depressing and cold and miserable. And everyone is waiting for spring and summer to come by. But I’m trying to be more positive about things I don’t like and to embrace everything about them.

So with this new spirit I’ve started writing down the many good things about winter, and will keep this list handy to help me on those bitter cold days when it takes me hours just to work up the courage to leave the warmth of our apartment.



  1. Untouched snow
  2. Catching snow flakes
  3. Making snow angels
  4. Drinking hot chocolate
  5. Buying Christmas presents
  6. Walking in a winter wonderland
  7. Christmas music
  8. Counting the days until Christmas
  9. Baking cookies
  10. Blankets
  11. Decorations & lights

Did I miss something on my list?

I hope that this list will help you to see the beauty of Winter during the cold and depressing days!

Lots of snowysnowflake_andreas kisses
