Thinking Warm Thoughts

Currently, as I sit cuddled under a blanket on my couch with my dog, it’s -15°F (-26ºC) with a windchill of -39ºF (-39ºC.) You know it’s really cold when the Celsius and Fahrenheit are the same. This little cold patch has been dubbed “Chiberia” here in Chicago.

So what’s keeping me warm today? A cup of tea, a fleece blanket and a cuddly pup. And looking through photos of warmer places and warmer times. So, to counter all of the snowy photos that have been floating around (and they are beautiful!) here are a few of my favorite warm weather moments and places from the past couple of years. Stay warm, everyone!
