Goodbye October & Hello November!

Hello November! Nice to see you again so soon. My only wish, however, is that you brought me colder temperatures and snow - lots and lots of snow.

I know you're probably thinking I am crazy desiring cold, stormy weather over the predictable California sunny skies and highs in the 50s during the winter months, but I can't help it. I'm an East Coast girl. I spent 20 years experiencing the beauty of each of the four seasons and was able to properly celebrate the holiday season with hot cocoa, a cold red nose, and snow. Oh snow - how I miss you so!

It has been over four years since I moved out West and in the last three I've spent here in the Bay Area, I have little cold weather clothing to show for it. For the longest time I refused to buy winter jackets, warm sweaters and such because it just never felt like winter. I still don't have much but am saving up for a mini shopping spree - perhaps having warm clothes to wear will help lift my spirits about the lack of winter weather.

Do you have cold, snowy winters? What do you love most about them?


  1. I live in Michigan....and here we get the worst of the winter weather. far as I'm concerned. LOL! I do love the change in seasons though. It's amazing. And I'm so excited to see my little girl experience the snow this year!

  2. We normally don't have snowy winters here. I miss the Bay Area weather. I can't wait for it to get colder here. I can't wait for hoodies and sweaters, hot chocolate.. Decorating for Christmas.
