Here we are a little past the middle of the winter season (in the northern hemisphere), and its just about the time some of us get a little too anxious for spring. Combine that with a lack of sunshine and you can find yourself with a case of the "winter blues." This winter the blues have been staved off for us by enjoying the Olympics with friends.
We love the the colors of winter and the glistening ice and snow, and are reminded that winter has been described as being the warmest season. Picturesque blankets of snow, warm wooly mittens, wrap-around scarves, and hats with ear-flaps warm in our imaginations, if not in deed. We love cozy nights with fires burning in fireplaces and candles in window sills, and there is nothing like being under a warm comforter with a book or newspaper in hand and hot chocolate at your side.
With those descriptions in mind, we hope you will enjoy our style of "Winter Blues" and are enjoying this once every four years, winter spectacle that is happening in a relatively warm, Sochi, Russia.
