I think I've done a pretty good job of not complaining about the weather in Massachusetts. And I could, I really could.
First, I have 21 years of Weather Complaining practice after living in the drizzliest, gray-est, I'm-going-to-freak-out-if-I-don't-see-the-sun--est city in the country. Second, I felt the snot FREEZE INSIDE my NOSE last week. New experiences!!
You can't ever leave the house here without being in full costume. I'm talking scarf and mittens and a hat. Today, the sun came out and I got a little too bold. I didn't wear a hat and I felt the early stages of a brain-freeze. from breathing.
Weirdly, I think bundling up is actually really fun! Maybe because it's doubled my options for accessorizing or maybe because of this little trick that has made it an easy part of my morning routine: I keep all my winter gear in a wicker basket underneath my coat, so rather than having to rustle around in my closet or drawers, it's all right there.
Let's be real. It usually looks like this ... but still.
