i have to be real with you: i pretty much hate winter. i have spent all of my winters dreading, whining, and screeching my way through until that bountiful smell of spring hits my nose. i decided that, this year, i was going to make a change. i was going to like winter. i was going to make small steps towards dealing with the inevitable fact that i live in new brunswick, canada, and there is no way around 20 below zero temps. i’ve invested in thick knits, i’ve ordered fleece lined tights, i’ve added a down filled parka to the equation, and i purchased the best snow scraper known to man. i now have this fashion blogging hobby, and i’m going to let it inspire me to roll with the season. here is my first contribution.
