"Chestnuts roasting on an open fireJack Frost nipping at your noseYuletide carols being sung by a choirAnd folks dressed up like Eskimos
Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoeHelp to make the season brightTiny tots with their eyes all aglowWill find it hard to sleep tonight..."
This holiday season looks a little different, and I mean that quite literally. Don't get me wrong, I'm loving the crunchy leaves and 70 degree days in December– that's both awesome and ridiculous. However, this is my first holiday season without snow and that's a big deal.
Growing up in Alaska, I only had one birthday without snow, and my birthday comes before Thanksgiving. To me the holidays are a cozy season by the fire with a warm drink. Christmas music is always in the background (more about that here) and the Christmas tree is always lit. Big sweaters, leggings, and boots are essentials, and fuzzy beanies feel like a December hug. It's the little things like these that make this time of year my favorite.
The hubs and I will be headed home for the holidays in just a week, and I can't tell you how excited I am to replace this backdrop with mountaintops and snow. Follow on Instagram, and I'll show you what I mean ;)
I'd love to hear how you spend your holidays! Use hashtag #HowDoYouHoliday...
