Snapshot 2010-07-03 16-08-56

Now that it's getting darker outside, it's time for me to fully address the fact that winter is coming.  I don't mind the cold so much, but the lack of light sends my seratonin packing to warmer climes.  This year is no exception, and I think due to stress I'm already feeling a bit of that I want to hibernate thing.

It's hard for me to slow down without feeling a bit blue, but it seems to me that winter forces that upon you.  So what if I can't run outside everyday?  So what if I want to eat heavier, richer foods, and sleep more?  That's natural!  I usually spend so much time combatting winter that this year I realized, what would happen if I just gave it to it?  While it can be hard to spend the umpteenth weekend indoors due to wintery rain (West Coasters: I'm talking to you!), I'm trying to figure out ways to make the indoors as cozy and comfy as possible.

The Scandis use lots of candles and natural light, even when it's dark, and I'm planning on following suit.  And shimmery decorations also help.  As does greenery.  Bring the plants inside!  Top photo source coco+kelley, bottom right and left: Toast Catalogue.
