     While bitterly cold days are often hard to manage when it comes to photographing outfits, I can usually still find some beauty in them. My hands ache so that only the car heater on full blast can thaw them out. My nose will sometimes get red and start dripping relentlessly. But I'm capturing the spirit of the season. I'll never be a shut in, even during the coldest months, because that would compromise my sense of adventure. Without the cold weather, I wouldn't be able to capture the moments below and then enjoy a steaming cup of hot chocolate in a hand decorated mug. I may have to remind myself of how much I love these little things next time I'm hating all the tights I own and just wanting to show some leg. But I think I can stay positive if it means more great memories to come.
