Dreading the Cold Weather? 14 Things That May Change Your Perspective!

Heading into October means the cold Midwest weather is just around the corner. The thought of that brings me dread. In an effort to change my perspective, I decided to focus on what I like about cooler weather. Here are a few of the things on my list:

  • chunky sweaters
  • the smell of the cool crisp air
  • vibrant colors of the leaves
  • the sound and the smell of a crackling fire
  • tucking your toes into a warm pair of slippers
  • a reason to drink hot chocolate (do you need a reason?)
  • football games
  • apple picking
  • fall festivals
  • curling up on the couch with a blanket
  • flannel sheets
  • the smell of holiday baking
  • the first snowfall
  • decorating the house for Christmas

How might changing your perspective help you in other areas of your life!?

I love fall and colder weather, Kelli Schulte! Love this list of ways to enjoy it.

Ohhh see not me!! The hotter and more humid the better!! But I'm trying to shift my focus on what is fun about the cooler weather!!

I love how you're shifting your focus to the positive, despite the fact that you're not so happy about what's ahead, Kelli Schulte! I will add to the list: 1) wearing fun boots with my fall dresses, 2) wearing homemade scarves made lovingly by Jan Mostrom, 3) eating homemade applesauce lovingly made by Jan Mostrom, 4) cooking holiday meals with my kids (they each have a dish they're responsible for), 5) taking crisp walks with Dieter Schmitz! Thank you for making me realize not only the things I love about fall, but also my fave fall peeps! xoxo
