Winter is most definitely my favourite time of year, I love the cold, being able to cuddle up in bed with my wonderful husband, bringing out all the hot chocolate, fluffy slippers and chunky jumper weather. The thing about winter is you might be be living near beautiful serine mountains that are covered in snow (I also am seriously hoping that London get’s some snow soon, because it is some of my favourite things in the world) but I think it definitely allows you to become close to the people you love. I know with winter, it means that I get to snuggle up closely with my husband and share all of his warmth because I never warm up!
So what are some of the reasons I love winter?
1. Lots of layers
I love layering in the winter, there is nothing better than having a wonderful chunky jumper on, fluffy socks, hats, scarves, gloves and doing everything that you can to keep yourself warm and toasty!
2. Hot Drinks
I love hot drinks, I mean hot chocolate is my absolute favourite in the entire world, it gives you so much warmth and it definitely kills the sweet cravings that you can have. However, I have to admit that it does make me incredibly comfortable and I usually end up falling asleep by the time I’ve drunk my hot drink.
It’s so beautiful right? It makes the place look so bright and beautiful, the way it glistens in the light, and when it falls and you’re watching it, it is so relaxing! I love having snowball fights with my husband when it snows, we always have such a laugh together!
4. Cuddles with your partner
When you have the biggest cuddles together and you’re cold and just being close, touching each others skin, you just stay so warm and toasty! I know when I cuddle up with Paul, I usually have really cold fingers, and I touched his hands the other day and he just warmed them so softly, it was beautiful!
5. Sunshine on cold crisp mornings
On mornings when you’re off to work, it’s cold but it’s sunny it just makes the day so much better. It’s not grey and dismal it’s enough to make your day start a lot better, and that chill in the air definitely wakes you up.
6. Watching Sunrises
I love being able to watch the sunrise because in the summer you’re very lucky if you’re able to watch it because the days are so long, so when it comes to winter at least you have more of a chance of catching it. And when you do, it is honestly so beautiful!
7. Winter Food
I bloody love winter food, it is absolutely delicious, having things like stew (oh my gosh I love it) or loads of roast dinners, soup and porridge/oats in the morning are totally the best things in the entire world, it keeps you warm, its hearty and delicious!
8. Shaving Isn’t Necessary
Oh my gosh when it comes to shaving your legs in the winter, you can at least leave it a bit longer than you normally would. And when you do end up shaving it literally feels like your legs are free!!
