Yes they’re cold and yes sometimes it’s a pain to navigate, but unless you plan on hibernating in a region close to the equator during the winter months, there’s really nothing else you can do about the situation. So, whether you’re an optimist or a pessimist, here’s a list of the absolute best reasons why I love winter to hopefully fill your own inner child with glee and preparing you for the ushering in of th Readmore »
