friday's letters 02

i used to think winter & i got along, but after this year...i'm not so sure! i know i've blogged enough about
 the joys of winter {sarcasm}, but here are a few more for ya! 

>> dear hands, i'm sorry i let you turn to icicles every morning. i am now starting to really understand & appreciate winter clothes. like real winter clothes. lately my hands have been frozen, especially when driving in the early hours of the morning, & my little target mittens just aren't cutting it! leather gloves make sense to me now. i would kill for a pair right about now. >> dear excessive layering, as pretty as the snow may be...i'm officially over bundling up to go anywhere! this pretty woman in the picture above is so stylish & gorge walking down a city street with snow at her feet, but come on...there is no way. >> dear me, let's try to be more optimistic, shall we! so, on a more positive note, winter is a great time for soups. i have enjoyed making various soups & stews lately. i do tend to miss this aspect of winter when the hot summer months are around. so, i think i will try a few more new soup recipes before the winter chill is gone & spring arrives! >> & since we are chatting about food, dear waistline, my apologies for not paying enough attention to you. making desserts seems to be inevitable when you are snowed in...or perhaps simply too cold to even think about going outside. i sometimes feel like a bear. all i want to do is eat a bunch of heavy desserts & hibernate for a while. i know some of you girls know what i'm talking about! &&& with all the many layers of clothing i wear every day, no one will notice the extra lbs, right??? because we all know i haven't hit the gym for a few weeks...okay, months. yikes!

cheers, winter.
but i am happy to report i am headed to NYC today!!!! big apple, here i come.
i can't wait to see you tonight.


  1. Hahaha! Loved this and I LOVE YOUR SARCASM. Lovely post. Trust me, I am also getting pick of Winter! xxxx

  2. But that blog so pretty!
    I love and why I follow you from now; D
    And of course thanks for stopping by mine if not for it could not find blogs like yours.

  3. Have a great weekend!

    PS- Layering in the winter=right to indulge in rich food since those layers hide the extra pounds

  4. yes! I never understood why we layer, but now I do! It's not to stay warm, it's so we can eat a ton of warm gooey desserts! You, my dear, are a genius!

  5. Those gloves. I want them so bad. Please. gimme. haha!

  6. i love this. winter has been particularly brutal this year to all parties involved, hands, waist, wallet, fashion, all of the keynote players. Great post.


  7. I really need to invest in leather gloves. It's getting ridiculous.

  8. There is a batch of brownies in the oven as I'm writing this, and a gallon of ice cream in the freezer just waiting to nestle on top of those brownies. No joke! I have to say too that I never was a wuss about the cold, but in the last couple years I am always freezing. That cute girl in the picture really is suffering for fashion!
