Hi Friends!  Patty and I are so glad you are here!  We hope you will join us in our linkup as we answer the questions below.  This month we are talking how to survive the winter months- can't wait to get some inspiration from all of you...here we go....

1. What Do You Do In the Winter That Brings You JOY?

When I think about November and December, getting ready for the holidays...cooking warm and cozy meals and celebrating with family and friends always brings me joy.  When I think about the New Year and the rest of the winter months, I think about fun indoor activities like watching my kids dance/play hockey

2. How Do You Stay Warm and Cozy?

I wear warm clothing/get cozy with a blanket and sometimes pull out the space heater and I also love to light a good candle to make things extra cozy around here

3. What are you looking forward to this winter?

Umm...when it is over...sorry not sorry...ha!

Not much....going to the movies...dinner out....maybe bowling?  Again, counting down the days until spring!

One day until March- you got this!! (I only say that because I know that you don´t like winter!) I need to check out your soup recipes... Have a great Thursday :).

Well, you've already inspired me to drink more water. I definitely don't drink enough water in winter. I like my water cold, and the weather's already cold, and well, it's a problem.

I don't think I'd mind the cold of the northern states around the holidays, but I would be DONE by February. Hang in there, spring is almost here!
