Fifteen Reasons Winter Doesn’t Suck

Unlike my mom who views winter as the season of sadness and hybernation, I view it as a glorious time of year.  Yes, the nights are loooooooong, the days are short, and it can be painfully  freezing, but in my opinion these fifteen reasons to love winter far outweigh any negatives:

  1. My Favorite Holiday–There’s nothing cozier than decorations, fireplaces and family!

2. My Puppies Love It-They hate the heat and the rain, but give them a foot of snow and watch out!

3. Hot Cocoa-with or without marshmallows and whipped cream; I’m flexible.
