Hey my loves!
Pre-Christmas time has officially started and I couldn't be more excited! I am so happy Winter is finally here, even though it's recently been pretty cold and windy outside. I am and have always been a winter kinda person - I just love this season where your cheeks turn lightly red, your eyes start glowing as they reflect the city's beautiful lights and you drink tea and hot cocoa throughout the day!
But mostly, I am absolutely in love with christmas songs, it's just the most amazing, mood-boosting and calming thing during winter time. Also, I'd consider myself to be an all-time candle-lover: There's nothing better than lightning up a candle and drinking a cup of tea on a cold winter's eve.
Also, I have recently discovered my love for fairy lights!
Oh, and blankets of course. There's nothing more comforting than a fluffy, warm blanket and some matching pillows to cuddle up in. You do see I'm a winter person, right? :)
Anyways, I feel that many people tend to dislike winter because of the cold, long and freezing nights and the windy and foggy weather. But what if we just start trying to see the good things in winter? Like the lights, the sweaters, the hot wine, the tea, the candles, the fireplaces and the privilege to have a warm, comforting home and some quality time with our loved ones! There are so many beautiful things to do during winter time, and I strongly believe that we shouldn't always opt for the things we don't have. Let's start appreciating the things that we are able to enjoy right now - at that very moment!
In this way, I hope you are as fascinated by winter as I am (given the level of my fascination, being half as fascinated as I am right now is highly enough :) !
Start appreciating the little, cozy and special things in your everyday life and you're gonna see how amazing it can be to enjoy winter time. Summer's gonna come anyways! :)
To give you a little hint on how to start getting in that holiday spirit - here's a song that means a lot to me. Not because it reflects a special memory, not because I think of a special person or what else specifically sentimental it could be associated with.. I just like it, that's it. And I highly recommend you to listen to this amazing masterpiece as soon as you can. I know it's 'just' that typical song, but you're gonna be amazed, trust me. I love how they emphasize their vocal spectrum in that melody, I love how they play with their voices and how they combine classical music and modern elements.
It's not a typical christmas song (which, btw, I love as well), but I do have the feeling that it makes you lose your thoughts while listening.
I hope you like it, thank you for reading!
Stay the way you are!
