Stuff We Love: Volume 5

Blog page KC Stuff We Love

There can no longer be any doubt that winter has finally arrived, whether we like it or not. In order to fight the subzero winter blues, we asked some KCees to share their favorite things to do, eat or drink during the coldest days of the year.

Liz: “I buy a new hat, or maybe some mittens, to trick myself into thinking I like putting it on.”

Nick: Winter layering. Nothing looks quite as great as shedding a layer in a flourish when you enter a room. It also makes hiding a flask way easier on chilly nights (or days). Whenever, really. No judgment here.”

Jodi: I like getting all bundled up and going on a winter walk. I never want to at first, but it’s good for the soul to be out tromping in the snow.”

Andie: “I love group indoor cycling. It’s a great way to stay active during the winter months without having to be alone at a gym. Try Surge Cycling, I’m a new instructor there!”

Amanda: “My favorite part about winter is when the snow has just fallen in the city, and the entire city is quiet and glitters in the light from all the snow that’s still clean and untouched. It’s so peaceful and beautiful. And then it turns grey and hard and ugly and winter sucks all over again.”

Peter:The winter skies are clearer than summer skies, so it’s a great time to star watch. Mars, Venus, and Saturn have all made appearances in the last two weeks, but you had to be up early to see them.”

Seka: “During winter I dream of visiting Sarajevo to see the 1984 Olympic site, eat Bosnian pizza, and to drink pivo.”

Brian: “Drink: Oatmeal stouts. Eat: Fried mac and cheese balls. Do: Cry.”
