There are certain things we crave in the wintertime – we can pick up the scent of chimney smoke in the cold air, think of snuggling up indoors, and we certainly drink a lot more hot coffee or tea. We long to curl up by the fire, cozy up in a blanket, and read a good book, enjoy slow and simple conversations, or just listen to the silence.
