With my family, the holiday is all about comfort, from the company we keep to the food itself, and fashion just isn't a huge factor.

10 Ways to Beat the Winter Blues

10 Ways to Beat the Winter Blues

It’s a running joke here in Seattle that our city has two seasons: summer, when the sun intermittently appears from the 4th of July through September, and winter, which lasts… the entire rest of the year. (Why do you think we love coffee so much?) Between Daylight Savings Time and the near-constant rain we’ve been getting this month, this “joke” feels very real right now---and, right on cue, as soon as DST began, I began my annual war on the winter blues.
