It's cozy season!
This was finally the week I busted out the sweaters, tights, and coats. While I am not a fan of being cold, I am a fan of being cozy. This is the season when I can drink hot tea and cocoa; slow cooker recipes come back in regular meal rotation; and, my books to read pile seems to grow exponentially.
I love when I can finally wear slipper socks and burrow under a blanket on the sofa. I am a homebody whose introverted ways mean that staying inside is my best form of self-care. While my husband would (rightly) say I do this every night, I love that winter temperatures make it more acceptable to loll about at home binge-watching (or reading) with a glass of wine. Add a few candles for ambiance and a snack of something on toast and we're now in hygge territory.
On an ideal weekend, I'd probably only leave the house to run out to grab snacks and dark roast coffee. Otherwise, you'd find me inside wearing athleisure rotating through a mix of reading, coloring, cooking, and lazing on the couch. I'd eat homemade baked goods, cook up a stew, and open a bottle of wine that was far to fancy for my wardrobe. Admittedly, this kind of weekend was only possible pre-parenting stage of life, but I look forward to teaching my toddler the joy of at home activities.
What do you need to feel cozy?
