6 Reasons Why Winter Is The Best Season

6 Reasons Why Winter Is The Best Season

It really is the best!

Winter may seem like the worst season of them all (it's cold, snowy, cloudy), but when you really think about all that happens during the winter season, you realize it's really one of the best seasons! Here's why:

1. Snow

As much as it is annoying, you have to admit that snow makes everything look gorgeous. There's also sledding, snowboarding, skiing, etc., that's too much fun to pass up! Also, don't forget about random snow days!

2. Christmas

Celebrating Christmas (or whatever holiday you celebrate) brings together family and truly reminds us of the spirit of giving. Definitely the best time of the year!

3. Fashion

Winter is the best when it comes to fashion! The cold weather makes it possible to bundle up and look cute while doing it! Watch Carly Cristman show off her winter fashion tips!

4. Hot chocolate

There's no other time of the year where it is socially acceptable to drink hot chocolate. Who doesn't love a cup of hot chocolate after being outside in the cold all day?

5. Shopping

Whether you're shopping for gifts for others, or something for yourself, winter brings the best sales and every mall and store is buzzing with people! It's the best time to spend some time shopping to do some spoiling for others and for yourself.

6. Winter Break

For those of us still in high school or college, this is the longest break we get all year! It's also a transition between semesters so there's little or no schoolwork to do at all. It's the perfect time to just relax and catch up with friends and family.

Although it may not seem like it all the time, winter is definitely the best season of the year.

I Blame My Dad For My High Expectations

Dad, it's all your fault.

I always tell my dad that no matter who I date, he's always my number one guy. Sometimes I say it as more of a routine thing. However, the meaning behind it is all too real. For as long as I can remember my dad has been my one true love, and it's going to be hard to find someone who can top him.

My dad loves me when I am difficult. He knows how to keep the perfect distance on the days when I'm in a mood, how to hold me on the days that are tough, and how to stand by me on the days that are good.

He listens to me rant for hours over people, my days at school, or the episode of 'Grey's Anatomy' I watched that night and never once loses interest.

He picks on me about my hair, outfit, shoes, and everything else after spending hours to get ready only to end by telling me, “You look good." And I know he means it.

He holds the door for me, carries my bags for me, and always buys my food. He goes out of his way to make me smile when he sees that I'm upset. He calls me randomly during the day to see how I'm doing and how my day is going and drops everything to answer the phone when I call.

When it comes to other people, my dad has a heart of gold. He will do anything for anyone, even his worst enemy. He will smile at strangers and compliment people he barely knows. He will strike up a conversation with anyone, even if it means going way out of his way, and he will always put himself last.

My dad also knows when to give tough love. He knows how to make me respect him without having to ask for it or enforce it. He knows how to make me want to be a better person just to make him proud. He has molded me into who I am today without ever pushing me too hard. He knew the exact times I needed to be reminded who I was.

Dad, you have my respect, trust, but most of all my heart. You have impacted my life most of all, and for that, I can never repay you. Without you, I wouldn't know what I to look for when I finally begin to search for who I want to spend the rest of my life with, but it might take some time to find someone who measures up to you.

To my future husband, I'm sorry. You have some huge shoes to fill, and most of all, I hope you can cook.

It's Still March But I'm Ready For Summer

Where are you summer?


I always get excited for fall and winter. And don't get me wrong, they are arguably the best seasons because they bring all the best things to us. Cute sweaters, adorable boots, and some snow are all things that make me extremely happy.

For about a month.

And after that month, I just get so tired of the cold weather and early nights. Let's be honest with ourselves: winter is exhausting.

It's March, it's still cold, and I'm completely ready for summer to be here already. Honestly, we can skip spring, because I am just in the mood for summertime.

Imagine it now: the sun doesn't set until 9 p.m., you can show off your cute new bathing suit, and you don't have to worry about wearing a coat every single time you go outside. Sound amazing, right?

Maybe I'm getting ahead of myself. After all, we still have quite a bit of time until summer is here. At least two more months of snow and freezing cold wind separate me from the end of school year and the bliss of summer.

But even though there's still a lot of time to go until the summer, I can't help but be excited already. I can't help but be thinking about cute outfits I can wear once it's warm outside and all the amazing experiences I'll be able to have over the summer that I never get to do when it's cold outside and I'm stuck on campus.

Anyone else craving summer now?
