The Little Things...Winter

Winter can be a long, lonely, gloomy few months and it is definitely a time to enjoy the little things. This month I am savoring the days that I was snowed in and decided to do nothing but relax, read, watch movies and eat comfort food. The beauty of a snowfall from inside a warm house and a walk to enjoy the wonderland it created. A pot of chili simmering on the stove after a long day at work and of course a few of my new favorite cookies. Fresh baked bread on Sunday morning. The antics of my pups who keep me on my toes and always put a smile on my face. Long calls with my siblings and parents on Sunday afternoon. Daydreaming of my upcoming trips. 

Those are just a few of the little things I have enjoyed this winter. What about you? Are you savoring the little moments in life? Please share your favorites from this month.

Have a great day!


  1. Oh but how I love the winter...for all the little things!

  2. How dogs can sleep like that is a mystery!

    Our area hosts a three week winter festival in February that helps things along nicely.

  3. OMGoodness your puppy looks just like my SIL's Buddy! They could be twins! What a cute photo. This winter has about gotten my down, so I'm trying to find the little things, too. We have a horse show this weekend, and I'm praying that it won't be rainy and cold.

  4. That puppy is the cutest!! Wishing you warmth this winter!

  5. I’m ready for warmer temps and sunshine! As I get older I’m enjoying winter less- didn’t know that was a ‘thing’ among seniors, but now I’m there! Don’t our animals bring us such joy? Ours are constant love and entertainment . Happy February Elizabeth and stay warm! Spring is getting nearer❤️
