Remember in Elf when Buddy is asked (kinda brazenly, no less) by the manager of Gimbels why he was smiling quote . . . like that . . . end quote? And without skipping a beat or easing up on his overzealous grin, Buddy replies,

“I just like to smile! Smiling’s my favorite!”

Same, Buddy, same. And my guess is we’re not alone in that. Keep scrolling for some encouraging, uplifting, and cheerful words that’ll help crack that b-e-a-utiful smile. My Hump Day gift to you!

People keep telling me this is a mild winter compared to years past, and while I believe them . . . y’all. I have never been so cold. For someone who runs as warmly as I do, I’m surprised to catch my teeth chattering as frequently as they have been.

On account of these sub-zero temps (I kid, I kid), it’s no surprise that I’ve been seeking out all the coziest things I can get my hands on — an extra blanket tossed on my bed, a few chunky sweaters added to my wardrobe, some delicious comfort food recipes. My recent Pinterest binges reflect this unending hunt for warmth as well as that coveted hygge feel I hope to achieve in my little downtown apartment.

Whether you’re like me and freezing your tush off in the cold or you find yourself in a sunnier locale, keep scrolling for some serious winter inspiration.
