Don’t know about you, but mulled wine season starts mid November for me guys. I bought some spices like cloves, mulled wine mix and cinnamon sticks the other day to make some quick mulled wine, and start off the yearly tradition.
Anise stars, cinnamon sticks, cloves, orange peels… these spices just scream wintertime to me. I must say I enjoy all the seasons for their own characteristics. As you know, I love autumn the most, but I do also really enjoy winter. The fresh crisp air, burning wood and first snowflakes covering the earth. Cold misty mornings that just make me want to sit by the window with a hot cup of tea or mulled wine and knit something cozy to wear.
As December slowly rolls in, it means Christmas markets are opening soon and there will be lots of goodies to enjoy in the bigger cities. I quite like visiting the capital this time of year, because the atmosphere is just enchantingly magical. From warm accessories and home decorations, to mulled wine and savory dishes, it’s truly a time of social gatherings.
Not to get too festive, I just wanted to share this subtle and welcome transition from autumn to winter that I am feeling at the moment. Snow is already in the forecast starting tomorrow, and I can’t say I’m not excited, We haven’t had a white Christmas for a while now.
I already stocked up on some wonderfully coloured wool and started knitting a winter sweater that I’ll share with you once it’s finished. Maybe I’ll do an early misty morning photoshoot with it.
I’ve also been exploring my home more, as it has so much to offer. As I mentioned in my “lake jasna” post, I planned on also visiting the Zelenci Natural Reservoir. That happened yesterday morning. It was much clearer than last time we were in Kranjska Gora, so I think I got some cool shots. The nature is so diverse and interesting here in Slovenia. It truly blows my mind sometimes. Stay tuned for a blog post with some pictures of that soon.
I hope you enjoyed this post and feel as excited as I do. The upcoming holidays are a time I look forward to spending with m family, so there will be a few festive posts coming up in December.
I will talk more about those once the time is right and I’ll see you very soon. Wish you a lovely start to winter and lot’s of fuzzy cozy moments that warm you heart and soul.
