The Winter List


Happy new year 2016 to all! I have a little something about goals and resolutions planned, but time is short and I'm leaving on a work trip tomorrow morning. In the meantime, I'd like to share with you a few seasonal joys, as a reminder of gratitude and appreciation, but also to contemplate tthe fleeting nature of seasons.

  • The smell of grilled bread & hot coffee in the early morning, when the night is still dark
  • A fresh gust of wind that smells like winter
  • Coming home to feel the tip of the nose and ears all cold
  • The long, quiet night under a warm plaid, with a hot tea and a few scented candles
  • These golden afternoons, where the sun is low and the sky bleached
  • Warming my hands around a hot cup of tea after a long walk outside
  • Spending some time in a hot pool, hammam or sauna, feeling the muscles relax
  • Testing new soup combinations
  • Life is nothing without melted cheese

I hope you are enjoying whatever season you are in right now, don't forget to live!


  1. Happy new year! And yes to all of these. If only it was a bit colder here in the Netherlands because right now it feels more like fall and I love winter.

    1. Happy new year to you too! The weather is getting colder these past few days, I'm looking forward to more of these winter joys :) Hopefully it's the same in Netherlands as well :)

  2. I'm so glad someone feels the same way about melted cheese as me!

    1. Hahaha always nice to see there are a few of us out there ;)

  3. So beautiful. Thanks for reminding me about the good.
