    I live in Louisiana and during the 'winter months', it can, on occasion, be a bit chilly. I fight the winter blues with my trusty Snuggle, thick socks and a hot cup of java!

    I love to fight the winter blues by having a roaring fire in our fireplace and sitting in our comfy family room with my sheepskin blanket over me!

  8. Michelle says:

    I fight the "winter blues" by lighting candles, boiling cinnamon sticks on the stove, baking, cooking with my crockpot, taking drives to see the snow, getting outside when the sun is out, opening the curtains and blinds every morning. I try to embrace the wintry things that we can't enjoy during the summer. Sipping on mulled wine, curled up on my sofa with a big warm blanket. Yum!

    Literally laugh in the face of the winter, by going outside to play! ;)

    Warm crackling fire, favorite new book, fur wrap or throw, my favorite way to beat the winter blues. A glass of champagne in a fabulous sparkling flute helps too.
