You’d think the shorter days and the longer stints of darkness would bring out more of a blogging habit in me (it certainly has the past few years) — but for some reason, this year is different. My morning commute is largely in the dark, my evening commute is largely in the dark, and somewhere along the line I think my inspiration got lost. Perhaps it’s because I don’t have the daylight to photograph new recipes and fresh outfits. Or the cold that has me dressed like an eskimo every time I go outside.
This post isn’t meant to be a whining rant. Let’s call it instead an intentional refresh. There’s lot of inspiration to be found in snowy days. Lots of warm stews to be made and cozy scarves to be donned and warm-weather plans to be anticipated. So here’s me committing to try a little harder. To start that knitting project I’ve been putting off and to read those books I have stacked by my bedside. Let’s make this year’s hibernation a good one. The March thaw will be here soon enough!
