Venturing out to gaze across the frozen lake by my husband’s family home in Sweden requires serious reinforcements. Only a short walk away, but I stashed sweets and a thermos full of hot chocolate into my bag. Don’t worry, I wasn’t crazy enough to wade through the snow and minus 10 degree weather in just this little dress. I’ve adopted a massive puffy jacket that makes me resemble the Michelin Man that I wear whenever I step outside. It’s so big I can hardly lower my arms to my side but at least it works to cushion the fall when I slide and topple over in the snow.
