winter's actually okay, and sometimes, it's pretty great

Sometimes winter seems like it never, ever {ever} ends. The lead up to Christmas flies by, and then the winter months of the new year seem to stretch endlessly before you {maybe not so dramatically, but you get my point}. Thankfully, there are a few little things that I use and wear that make me treasure {or at least be semi thankful for} winter.

1. A Cozy Hat

You just can't wear these in the summer. And they're cozy, which is an obvious benefit.<span class=

2. Various Lip Balms

I use these big time in the winter, and when they smell like peaches or pomegranate, it's like summer on your lips! Without them, winter probably wouldn't be the same.

3. A Warm Fire

Would you relax by the fire with lemonade in the summer? No. So it's extra special to curl up in front of the fire in the winter.

It's the little things of winter that make it bearable. And okay, sometimes it's pretty sweet.
