There is no such thing as a bad day to curl up with a good book or to read aloud with my kids but my absolute favorite days to snuggle in beneath the blankets and read are the cold snowy days that we get nearly every winter in this part of Ohio. When we are snowed in or it is so cold that going outside freezes your skin instantly, we love to grab a book that matches our season and truly enjoy the this time of year. While others are wishing for spring, we love to stay in the moment and relish the season God has placed us in knowing that it will change soon.
