winter bucket list

Winter can be really tough in the Midwest. Freezing temps and less daylight hours sometimes make hibernating in bed seem like the only (or at least the best) option. It is so easy to find things to do in the summer- fairs, festivals, concerts, laying on a beach, hiking, swimming, etc. But when winter comes around, suddenly it feels like Netflix is the only thing that exists. Today, I'm giving you some ideas of what you can do to defeat the cold-weather blues!
