It is winter in Chicago, and I have to confess it is a little hard for me to bear the cold and lack of warmth and sunlight. Although I do have to admit the white fluffy snow draped over the lanscape is quite breathtaking, I still get a bit somber in winter, so with this is mind, I thought it might be good to focus on the things I do love in order to help get my attitude on the positive! I've decided to make a list of my favorites, you know kind of like; if I were stranded on a desert island what would I bring idea? Here it goes, in my stream of consciousness and not necessarily in order.
