I want to feel the cold

Image Courtesy of Etsy

I just want it to be winter

So that I can feel the cold.

I want to paint in warm sweaters and listen to eagles sing from the studio window while I’m cozy in my fuzziest socks. A cat in my lap, purring. The smell of pine in my nose.

Hot tea steaming in my favorite mug just an arm reach away…

The warmth of a hug from the one you love all the more comforting with the coming of a winter storm, snowing and pouring and hailing.

Love blossoming in the coziest space between two people snuggling to make the cold feel warm and full of life.

I just want it to be winter

So that I can feel the cold and live again in coziness and spice.
