Baby, it’s cold outside! Did you look up the current weather forecast for Christmas yet? Despite my best intentions to refrain from it until a few days before I have to admit I did. And … sunny, about 5 °C. I’m torn if I shoud like it or not. Sure, given that I’m a cold wimp I should probably rejoice. But Christmas just doesn’t truly feel like Christmas without some snow and the cold. Though I figure Arman might disagree …
Anyway, the weather might still end up turning around completely and surprising us and you didn’t come to hear me ramble about it in the first place, huh? What I did intend to share was another round of awesome posts from all around the wonderful world that is the internet. I hope you find them thought provoking, inspiring or delicious, too!
