This Week’s Little Thing to Love

Y’all I am ready for Friday. Truth be told, this week has kind of kicked my butt. Like in that, I need more hours in my day, more exercise in my mornings, more sleep in my nights, more designated meal times so I can put an end to my fun size candy bar kick kind of way. I definitely could use one of these, or preferably both…

As always after a tiring day, a little gratitude goes a long way. Tonight, I am so looking forward to going home, putting on my power suit, aka sweatpants, and watching what is left of this week’s DVRd episode of the Bachelor. The comfort of home is this week’s little thing to love.

Reader Question: What is your little thing to love this week?

No Place Like Home

Today’s high temperatures only reached the 50s, and while I may normally grudgingly grab my winter coat and stomp my feet harder than necessary when chilly, I unexpectedly welcomed this week’s cooler weather. Somehow Christmas music, holiday lights, egg nog lattes, and wrapping Christmas presents feel more festive when a quasi-cold front runs through. And let’s be honest, temperatures in the 50s can hardly be categorized as cold.

Nevertheless, as the cool weather settles and Christmas nears, I appreciate the quiet nights spent at home lounging in my pajamas and plush bathrobe, reading my favorite blogs, as the football game that Dan watches serves as comforting and nostalgic background noise.

Other perks of being a seasonal homebody? Board Games, Magazines, and a chance to get in the kitchen to try to emulate my grandma’s amazing cooking.

Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.
