Happy new year, friends! Here we are, moving slowly into yet another year. Decorations and holiday lights are gone, our homes are swept clean, pared back. And though days are short, the sun is scarce and winter’s chill has set in, January does bring its own gifts.January allows us to settle in and get cozy. We cocoon in our warm homes, cuddle under handknit blankets, allow our minds to wander. Comfy flannel shirts are a staple, as are plenty of warm drinks. January also allows me to rediscover cozy activities that keep my hands busy. I’m baking more often, I started a simple knitting project and began filling up a new journal. As much as I love photography, making something tangible with my hands makes me happy. Do you feel the same way? How are you easing into winter? (Share your ideas and projects with me…I’d love to know!)
P.S. That beautiful blanket is not my creation but a gift from my talented sister-in-law.
