We all have them! We probably just never really slow down long enough to think about them. Here’s your chance. What are some of your go-to items when the temperatures drop? Hmmm…now that I’ve gotten you thinking, allow me to share my top 5 essentials for enjoying cooler temperatures.
1. A plush, cozy throw
I am a homebody at heart and curling up on the sofa watching a movie or reading a good book is one of my favorite things to do. It’s that slice of “me time” that I crave when the weather turns cooler. I cannot think of a better way to spend it than snuggled under the softest, warmest throw.
2. A candle that smells like fall or winter
Nothing excites or calms me more than the smell of a fragrant candle. The smell of pumpkin, apple spice, and pomegranate are my top choices. Nothing too overpowering, but just enough for the smell to waft through the air like a light cloud. I also like fragrances with a bit of cinnamon, vanilla, and sandalwood.
3. A great book
If I’m being honest, I love to read no matter the time of year. Each season brings with it a taste for a different topic, but reading always tops my list of essentials. When the temperature drops, for reasons I’ve not really given any thought, I gravitate to more weightier content. Those reads that require me to think and possibly challenge my way of thinking. I wouldn’t say psychological thrillers, however, I wouldn’t be opposed.
4. A delicious warm drink
There is nothing quite like a delicious hot beverage on a crisp day. From a delicious cider, infused with flavorful fruits and spices to something a bit stronger, in an alcoholic variety, with mouthwatering biters and juices. Nothing warms the insides quite like a tasty warm drink.
5. Comfort food
Ahhh, what is there to be said of one’s favorite comfort food? Mine is cheesy mac & cheese or heavenly cheesy homemade biscuits. A savory hearty soup with warm cornbread is another that will give me all the cool weather “feels” and make life all the better.
