Hi guys! Jacqueline here. Happy Friday and first day of February! It’s no secret that I’m a baby when it comes to cold weather. Every year in January I struggle with a bad case of the winter blues (or a self-diagnosed case of seasonal depression) and I know I’m not the only one out there. I’m the type of person, that once Christmas and New Years is over, I’m ready for spring and would be totally fine skipping winter altogether. Unfortunately though- I live in the Midwest, where winter seems to last a lifetime and we don’t see much sunshine from the months of November-March. For those of you in the same boat (which is probably a lot of you with the Polar Vortex), I’m here to hopefully help lessen the blow winter can have on our moods and overall lifestyle. Over the years I’ve found small ways to beat the winter blues and bring life back into a somewhat “dead” season.
