Curing the Winter Blues

Do you want to know what is on my mind today (most days in the winter)?

Key West

Key West, FL- A Cedar Spoon

This sunset in Key West…

El Valle, Panama

El Valle, Panama- A Cedar Spoon

 Or the best cup of coffee I ever had in the mountains of El Valle, Panama….


Panama- A Cedar Spoon

 Or this secluded beach in Panama that my husband and I got to enjoy…

Outer Banks

The Outer Banks, NC- A Cedar Spoon

 This sunset at the top of the sand dunes in the Outer Banks, NC..


Hawaii- A Cedar Spoon

 Or even better, this sunset in Hawaii..


Hawaii- A Cedar Spoon

 Or this one…

Traverse City, Michigan

Traverse City- A Cedar Spoon

Or experiencing a little Pure Michigan.

I am guilty…my mind is filled with these pictures, memories and the feeling of warm weather, colorful surroundings and beautiful sunsets. 

In my short 31 years of life I have come to the realization that I am a warm weather person. I have always loved beaches and warm weather but now that I am older for some reason it is even worse!

I am still trying to figure out ways to cure the winter blues (other than eating comfort food constantly and hibernating the minute I get home from work) and ideas are greatly appreciated? 🙂

Until then I will sip on this “tropical smoothie”…


Cheers to warmer days!

Growing up in Boston and now living in Seattle I definitely find myself missing the sunshine and the warmth. Love the idea of a smoothie in the middle of winter to transport you beachside. Great idea.

Yum! I am so in hibernation mode and I don't even care. I am so excited for summer. We are going to a wedding in Key West. I have never been and that sunset makes me happy!
