2015- 28 Days of Loving Winter

By : Lowrah · January 30, 2015

'Tis the Season

Last year, I publicly admitted that February is the hardest winter month for me.  The Polar Vortex was grinding me down.  My long, dark commutes were losing joy.  There is typically a lot of loafing and self-pity at that point in the season, neither of which is very good for my physical or mental health!  To inspire a more positive mental attitude, I challenged myself to write 28 things in 28 days about the positive aspects of winter, #lovemnwinter.  It was fun!

These are a few of my favorites

  1. Snot rockets 
  2. Fire
  3. Snow and ice sounds 
  4. Icicles
  5. Grease Rag 

This year, I've asked Grease Rag friends to participate in loving winter!  So get ready for another 28 posts in 28 days, highlighting what makes Minnesota beautiful and pleasant in the winter. Some posts will be written by me, some short, some long, some with pictures, some only 140 characters.  I'm so excited to read about the things people love about our most infamous season!

The challenge has ended, but I have a lot more love to give...
