Winter is officially here. It may not feel like it quite yet down here in Tennessee, but on the calendar, it’s wintertime.
Winter tends to be a harsh season, with all the cold temperatures, the snow and everything else that comes with it. Dry skin and frozen toes are about as common as colds. Plus, everything is gray because all the plants and trees have died or lost their leaves. It’s just kind of depressing.
I know when the first day of winter hits–whether by calendar or by Mother Nature–my first thought is usually, “Well, here come the longest four months of the year.” Spring feels farther away with each snowfall and sub-freezing day. When will it ever end?!
But fear not! You can make it through winter! You just need to gather your winter essentials and have them on hand for whenever the winter blues strike (or when you otherwise need them).
