its cold out. wear a coat!

December 21 marks the first day of winter. So I would like to know why when I woke up this morning, on December 8, the temperature on the ever so accurate read "27 degrees".  I have been holding off getting my winter coat out until it was officially winter but this is getting ridiculous. I'm cold. I had to do it. This morning I went in my basement and found my winter coat.  It's AMAZING how much warmer I was in a winter coat....and my red and white mittens of course.

I do love this time of year because of the season (see below post) but also to see the kind of bundling people come up with! It's amazing to see the kind of lengths people will go to to stay warm..its always funny to watch a grown person waddling due to excessive layers.

For now, I leave you with the best video I have seen in a while. Mainly because it reminds me of when my friends and I go out to Plough and Stars...two of the people are literally doing the same move that I thought Sarah Pisano wrong was i?!

hello, december.

December first. It means it is officially Christmas season. And I get to officially begin my advent calendar. My favorite.  I love this season. I love the weather and how festive everyone feels and how people gather for holiday parties and exchange gifts and food and spend time together. People sing and dance and spike the egg nog. Really, whats not to love scrooge?  Just to show my cheer, I'll show you a picture of my Dad and I in front of a 21 foot Christmas tree made of oreos....whats not to love about this holiday?!

Tonight I cannot get these lyrics out of my head....awake my soul by Mumford & Sons...I think everyones soul needs to be awaken. This is a joyous time. A King is born.

In these bodies we will live, in these bodies we will die
Where you invest your love, you invest your life

Awake my soul, awake my soul
Awake my soul
You were made to meet your maker
Awake my soul, awake my soul
