Winter As a Feeling

Good morning!  Each season I love to put together a collection of photos that I have found that hold the essence of what that particular season feels like to me.  But I don’t think I have ever done a Winter As a Feeling post!  Most likely because in years’ past, after Christmas I have been ready to put our tree and all of the decorations away by January 1st and swing right into Spring.  I’m finding myself in a much more mindful state this year and I’ll be letting things go little by little.  So much of the reason why I would rip our decorations down in such a hurry is because I was just jonesing to decorate for the next season.  My mind is working so differently now — slower, more intentional.  I’ll be enjoying Winter.  This year there will be a Winter for me.  It feels good.

Our Christmas decorations will probably come down in the next week or so.  But that cozy feeling won’t leave.  It won’t be a mad rush to take everything down at once.  It will be a process.  A gentle letting-go and packing away.  Until next year…

These photos feel like Winter to me.  I can feel all of the cozy textures when I look at these pictures — the blankets and pillows, the metals, the warm fires.  I can also feel the cold floors!  😉  I love a good, cold floor with the heater on in the Wintertime.  I love faux fur blankets, and pom poms, and a splash of greenery, and yes — cold January floors.  This is what Winter feels like to me…

  1. Probably the smell of a fireplace, the musty odor of my winter coat pulled out to wear, crunching of snow beneath my feet, that first whiff of cold air when I let the doggies out first thing on a cold winter morning. I can hear in my mind the blades of ice skates on the frozen pond in Minnesota so many years ago. Also plaid Pendleton skirts and knee socks and puffs of breath while standing at the bus stop in January. I’ve been in Arizona so long that winter for me returns my mind to my mid-western up bringing. Fond and vivid memories.
