Mentally Basking Underneath the Warm Tropical Sun

It’s not officially winter, yet the weather has been stating otherwise! Last week, the weather was at it’s worst after a large ice and snowstorm hit the Midwest. Even though the snow is slowly, but surely starting to melt away, some of the roads are still not in tip-top shape, and the temperature is steadily dwindling down, making it brutally and unbearably cold. I mostly stay cooped in my home during this time of year since I’m not particularly fond of cold weather. That’s putting it mildly, though. Give me autumn or spring-like weather any day, because I loathe winter. Even though it’s technically not winter, I’m steadily daydreaming of the short-lived, yet beautiful , days of spring! Therefore, I couldn’t help but smile when I read Chateau Ste. Michelle‘s suggestion on their digital advent like calendar (My Chateau Holiday Calendar) for December 11th.

Happy Feet Mentally Basking Underneath the Warm Tropical Sun

Their suggestion for December 11th was: “At some point today, pour a glass of wine, put your feet up and daydream about your next tropical vacation spot.” Obviously, they share the same sentiments as I do. However, I could use a warm and sunny vacation anywhere, tropical or not.

  5. I need a vacation to anywhere warm, too! I was just wondering why I live in such a cold and snowy area – we have over a foot of snow, and I am ready for warmer weather!

  7. I must be ready to get out of winter too because I had a dream about a tropical vacation last night. I suppose it wouldn’t hurt to put my feet up (and click them a few times) and daydream about somewhere tropical.

    It’s in the 70s here – so I don’t have to dream about the tropical sun! I wish we would have snow – but just for a day!

  17. It’s been in the teens here in Massachusetts recently, but I hear it’s supposed to warm up into the 50′s this weekend. That’s practically a heat wave for this time of the year and I’ll take it!!

  18. What a lovely idea! I may have to put my feet up today and daydream too. I am also in the Midwest and have been suffering form awful cold, snow & ice. If I could move to someplace with 50-80 degree weather year round I would be in heaven.

  23. I could use some wine right now.

  24. I so hear you! I’m dreading anymore snow!

  25. In Florida I can physically bask under the sun pretty much any time of year. I wish I could mentally bask in the snow for a day or two though, it would be fun for a little bit.
