warm and cozy

Happy Monday! I don't know about you, but I'm OVER this whole winter-thing. After many years of living in an absolutely ideal climate, I was excited about experiencing a real winter, snow and all. Unfortunately, I've got to say it gets really old really fast. Now I understand why people get seasonal affective disorder.

When I first moved to Denver, people told me that winter would be long, but the sunshine would make it livable. I hate to disagree, but no amount of sunshine makes endless days of cold and snow livable.

My husband and I are hibernating as much as possible. We watch Downton Abbey over and over again, drink tea like we'll never get the chance to drink tea again, and avoid other people like the crotchety old hermits we're quickly becoming.

I am longing for spring, and just trying to be as positive as I can... it's not easy. My floral choices lately have been bright colors. While I normally prefer muted, de-saturated shades, I am definitely needing a dose of bright and peppy right now. Hopefully, these cheerful colors and sweet blooms will sustain me until spring arrives!

It's no wonder that tax season is during it's-so-cold-I-want-to-tear-my-eyeballs-out season, right? Hopefully these flowers brings you a little cheer, especially if you're stuck in a less-than-temperate climate, like me! I'm going to wrap up in a blanket, turn on my electric heater, and try to stay warm and cozy while I attack the tax prep!
