Winter Doldrums

This one goes out to all my snowed-in homies.

Until recently winter has never really gotten me down. I was always able to deal with the cold, snow and ice relatively well. That is until this year. We have had SO MUCH SNOW and it is just SO COLD. It’s kind of giving me the blues. Sort of like this:

I think what’s making it worse is that we had a spectacular summer and last winter was incredibly mild (I think we got a total of a few inches of snow). I’m just a little bummed, but trying to make the best of it. I’ve been making an effort to get out and even tried snow shoeing a few weekends ago. Oh well, it is what it is. How many weeks til Spring???

I wore this on Sunday, which was spent inside for the most part, except for a couple of errands. Very comfy and warm, perfect for a chilly day.

About sweetersalt

Salt = sodium = bad. Sweet = calories = bad. Well, isn't that just a bleak outlook. I firmly believe that without salt and without sweet we all just live in a world of lettuce. Plain lettuce. Fun? No. This blog is about life. Namely, my life. But, not that specific. I myself am simply not that interesting. I live an ordinary life, work an ordinary job and do ordinary things. But... life is all about experiencing that feeling you get when you really, really like something. If you don't feel a little warm in your heart when you walk into a farmer's market or try on a piece of beautiful clothing that fits you perfectly (that just so happens to be a great deal!) then you should probably keep on a' movin' from my little plot of internet. Sweeter salt is my metaphor for the good things in life, sprinkled over everything in moderation. Banana? Kinda boring. Banana smoothie - yum! White tank top? Yawn. Statement necklace layered over said tank - now we're talking! I live in Portland, Maine. I love cooking, eating out, riding my bike and approachable fashion. This blog does not chronicle my every waking moment. This is because you will probably not be entertained by the 10th day in a row that I eat the exact same salad for lunch. It does chronicle a healthy, active, fun-filled, colorful lifestyle, in Portland and beyond. It also covers dogs. Cute ones mostly.
