We’re not fans of cold weather, either
Though it’s difficult to consider Toronto’s early December snowfalls as autumn, the winter solstice marks this week as the first of winter. For those that enjoy the feeling of warmth, sunshine and vitamin D—we know it can be tough. But surviving the harshest of winter builds character. It’s a reminder that, with a bit of grit, perseverance and optimism, there are better times ahead. Alternatively, it’s an opportunity to climb back into bed and wait out the end of the season. Yeah, we pick door number two, and we recommend you do the same, albeit with an eye toward designer bedroom style. Below, some suggestions for ways to ride out the remainder of these dreary days.
