keeping cozy.

When it's twenty degrees outside and snowing, with a "real feel" of eight degrees, I look for any and everything that might make me feel cozy... This means warm fires, flannel sheets, velvety blankets, apple cider, wool mittens, hot soups, and comfy little nooks where I can curl up with a good book.
But it also means diving wholeheartedly--and, okay, semi-obnoxiously--into the holidays. these past few days we've spent all our free time decorating every little corner of our apartment. There are snowmen and santas and christmas lights galore. We have Radley's childhood nativity scene and a brand new fabric advent calendar and snowglobes aplenty.
Because the holidays--unlike big blankets or thick mittens or flannel pajamas--can make you feel cozy from the inside out... and that's the best kind of cozy, don't you think?
