Welp, it’s official. Winter is really laying its cold hands on us in New England and it’s pretty easy to get a hint or a heap of seasonal affective-ness. It’s about this time that I personally start doing some mental time travel and pretend that Spring is closer than it is. I start planning my Spring and Summer outfits in my mind, and maybe make a few special dress purchases and hang them on the wall as a reminder that the white stuff on the ground outside will melt; that 10 degrees below zero is not forever. Really, time moves so fast and before we know it we are all going to be hot messes complaining about the heat.

Instead of letting Winter get the best of me and crawling under the covers for the next month, I’m starting a list of positive things to do this time of year. Since I’m not much of an outdoorsy gal in the Winter, my list includes things like reorganizing and simplifying my closet. Being a Millie Girl 12 Years Strong, I have quite the dress collection, and some of them are probably not so appropriate for my 40-year-old self. I know I always feel so much better when the clutter in my life is gone. Even though the clutter always returns and it’s time to clean up again... but hey, that’s what the Winter is for right? That and baking cookies. Lots and lots of cookies...
