Antiquaria Journal Club | Week Fourteen

“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire; it is the time for home.” 
Edith Sitwell

Hey Journal Gang!

Was your past week filled with thoughts of self-love and rituals of self-care? Hopefully so! After reflecting on ways to nurture the self and live a little more simply, we are feeling motivated to make more time to sustain a balance within. Life happens, things get busy and the scales can get tipped, but reflecting on ways to slow down and just ‘be’ is always helpful for some mental perspective. Let’s keep it up throughout 2020! *Adds to 2020 intentions list*

Speaking of 2020…How are we almost into it’s third month already?? Spring is just a little over a month a way, and the sun lingers a little longer each day. It seems like around late February, daydreams of greenery in Spring start creeping in. In our Journal Collage Workshop last week, we noticed green coming through as a collective theme among the collages; we suspected our subconscious thoughts of Spring were playing a role in that! With that in mind, we thought we would take some time this week to lean into the remainder of this season we’re in, and end on a high note by reflecting on all of the things we appreciate about this time of the year. After all, there are many joys in Winter!

So, what aspects of Winter do you look forward to or revel in? All the cozy hobbies? Skiing adventures in the mountains? The mountains in Colorado are majestic in every season, perhaps even more so in Winter.  Do you love how quiet and sparkly the world feels after a fresh snow? (That's the best!) Soup and candles? Maybe you enjoy the vibe of being indoors and the overall tone. Winter wardrobes maybe? All the layers - so many fashion opportunities! For those in warmer climates, what are your favorite Wintry things?

No matter your favorite season, there is beauty to appreciate in each one. So let’s think positive and reminisce on all those lovely things while it lasts. For next thing we know, it will be Spring!

Happy Journaling!!
