5 Things We Love About Winter



Now that the holidays are over, some of the excitement of the season has passed. But there are still plenty of things to cherish about winter.

1. The Weather

That’s right, the frosty mornings are a good thing about the season. The cold, crisp air is a unique facet of winter that no other season can compare to; there’s nothing quite like the smell of cold. Plus, snow! The way light reflects off freshly fallen snow, making snow angels and sledding down hills are all part of what makes winter beautiful.

2. Winter Getaways

Taking a vacation to a tropical place is just that much more rewarding when you know the weather at home is frigid. Spending time on the beach and taking in that sunshine will help lift your spirits and calm your mind. Just be sure to pack the ultimate travel accessory, your ESTEAM® Handheld Travel Steamer!

3. Winter Fashion

Dressing for winter means bundling up in your favorite sweaters, coats, scarves and hats. No need to hibernate all winter, just add more layers! Need some new items for your winter wardrobe? Check out our Sustainable Fashion post.

4. Comfort Food

The food in winter is full of flavor and unapologetically heavy. Winter is the perfect time to turn on the oven and bake a casserole, roast root vegetables or cook a lasagna. The ultimate comfort food is likely full of cheese or chocolate. If you’re in the mood to whip up something sweet, check out Nashville food blogger Beth’s dessert section on Eat. Drink.

5. Cozy Nights In

Because the sun sets earlier in the winter, it’s the perfect excuse to stay in and cozy up on the couch with a good book or your favorite show. No judgement if you’ve binged three Netflix series in the last three weeks! Winter nights are made for lounging around in your sweats and fluffy socks, making a cup of tea and spending extra time on yourself.
