A Date With Winter

One of the things I love about Winter is the forced slowness. You are given a few more opportunities to slow down and get cozy, catch up with loved ones or catch up on your reading list.
But just because the turn of the new year has come and gone and the resolutions are in full swing doesn’t mean we have to speed through the season and leave winter in a hurry! I fully recommend resisting the urge to rush rush rush into the year and make a date for yourself with Winter.
Cozy up in your favorite oversized sweater. We spend most of the season wrapped in our favorite Cashmere Cocoon Cardigan from Jenni Kayne.
Making yourself a simple and nourishing meal with seasonal produce is one of the best ways to pay homage to the season and start off your day feeling amazing. During the Winter I love to start the day with some warm steel cut oats, topped with a few blood orange slices, almond milk, a small handful of walnuts and a light drizzle of honey or date syrup. To make it extra special, serve it up in a beautiful vintage ceramic bowl. Trust me, they make everything more beautiful and therefore more delicious.
