when the weather simply refuses to stop doling out wintry tests of endurance, it’s time to answer back with a plan to enjoy the last few weeks of winter delights. remember how exciting wooly socks and steaming cups of tea were a few months ago? trying hard to remember what it feels like to turn the oven on in july and to savor this morning’s cranberry muffins. feeling somewhat buoyed by the memory of seeing this little guy peeking through the snow this week. and glad i spent the weekend lazing about with my sister. and friends. and this bundle of sweetness.
