My Snow Day Essentials

Image
Cold days are definitely towards the bottom on the list of things I enjoy. I could sit here and list things I dislike about winter for hours, but have decided to focus on something positive instead.

I have to admit it, I kind of like winter. Tea tastes better, fireplaces are oh so cozy, and surprise snow days give me a break from the office. The thing I hate about winter is what it does to my skin. I have dry skin, and this time of year can be a complete nightmare if I don't treat it right.

One of my weaknesses in life is a hot cup of David's Tea. When I ordered my latest haul of tea I was in the mood for a nostalgic taste to take me back to my childhood.
