Ok, so we just had a light dusting of snow Christmas eve and then again during the week, but it was enchanting! It covered the lawns and trees in our relative's NJ neighborhood and left the streets clean and safe to drive so it was all good. We got cozy when we lit a fire and opened another bottle of Cabernet. I gotta say I'm lovin' the winter so far and it's inspired me to step up the coziness in my own home. (Photos of that will come soon). There's a chill in the air tonight and I'm wrapped in my long cashmere sweater as I type and drink my peppermint tea with a spoonful of cinnamon. How about you? Do you get into the coziness of the season?
