I don’t know about you, but I think it’s the perfect time of year to get my cuddle on.

It has been a ROUGH re-entry into work and school society in this family. The kids went back to school on Wednesday, Cassidy went back to work on Thursday, but our house guests are staying until Friday. Who wants to leave house guests? I certainly don’t. As I had lunch with one of them today, we talked about how tough this time of year can be – because sometimes there’s not as much to look forward to after the holidays end. Well I say a big NO to that. I’m looking ahead and I like what I see. I see Florida, Valentine’s Day, SPRING, and all of these early 2019 months to work on goals, work and fun.

5 Tips to Get the Most out of Winter Afternoons:

1 – I’m starting with my favorite. It’s about warm connections in winter, but started the night before! Make sense? Well maybe it’s the writer in me, but I like to send out nice emails, e-cards, gifts, etc. the night before – especially when I’m up late – and then I actually look forward to the next day because that means my loved one is reading my words. And smiling!

2 – Do something active. Maybe you’re the type to get up for a run. Maybe you can do a full-blown exercise routine every afternoon. Or maybe it’s just a five minute warmup – or a dance party with your kids. Do something to MOVE!

3 – Have something to look forward to – and then count down to it. For us, it’s the winter holidays – like Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day. We also have an annual winter Florida trip and Des never lets us forget to count down to it!

4 – Lights, camera, action. Whether it’s a simple act of opening the curtains, stepping outside, or even investing in an illuminating alarm clock that gradually lights up a room like a summer morning, I always use light to my best advantage.

5 – Invest in ClimateRight by Cuddl Duds from Walmart. Why? It’s because they’ll keep you warm while making you look good, and nothing says happiness like comfort and confidence. Through EVERY part of your day, no matter where you are.

I love that they provide warmth for everyone – from crossing guards to nurses and EMTs, to work at home parents to bus drivers. Basically – everyone.

Plus they can fit into anyone’s lifestyle with both work and outdoor winter activities.

Personally, I love them all but I can’t live without my Plush Warmth layers from the Warm Baselayer Collection. They fit MY lifestyle, which includes a lot of work, dog-walking, driving, and walking the kids to and from the bus stop – which is always a vigorous walk. We also make lots of time for winter activities, like sledding and playing. Often, it’s just about snuggling with Astro by the fire. That’s like my number one favorite winter activity – just chilling out.

We’re socks people in my house! We always have been and always will be. That’s why I’m so proud to be partnering with PEDS® for this post. They are perfect for every occasion, and especially as the weather turns crisp and cool in fall.

What can I say? PEDS® Socks feel SO good on my feet!

I’m completely hooked and I have them in three colors, as well as black lacy ones. They’re divine and I’ve gotten Scarlet hooked on them as well. This is pretty awesome, considering how often I’m on my feet for fun family activities.

PEDS® Socks are comfy and versatile. Whether you’re wearing them to the gym, to date night, to work, or even on Halloween, they’ve got your back. Running a marathon? You got it – you know what to wear. The thing is, the summer to fall transition is a tough one for me, as you know. I’ve put away my summer sandals, and now it’s just boots and closed-toe flats or whatnot. Another fall staple for me is my PEDS®. They’re the perfect accompaniment to my new fall boots.

They’re appropriate for my fall wardrobe so I can retain both style and comfort. Y’all know I love that. Also, holiday gifting! In my family, we love socks in our holiday stockings. I can’t wait to spoil my mom, sisters, and sister-in-law with their soon-to-be-favorite socks. It’s honestly the perfect gift for friends and family. Why? First of all, it’s comfort. They can make uncomfortable shoes – like heels, boots, wedges, etc. – more comfortable. And that’s a gift in itself.

Also, it’s not just about making your shoes more comfortable. It’s that they have a sock for any kind of shoe. It’s versatile! No matter what you’re wearing, these high quality PEDS® Socks can be a big part of your outfit of the day.

5 Places I Wear My PEDS® Socks in Fall:

1 – Work! It is incredibly hard to be on my feet all day long during long photo shoots. Even with wearing comfortable shoes and boots, I still need to be wearing my PEDS® as well. It’s almost like a hug from your socks. It feels great!

3 – Date night! I love to wear pretty boots for date night. Like the photo above with the red dress and long black boots? As well as these new purple wonders that I’ve been enjoying. They’re low, which makes it nice that my PEDS® are too.

4 – Relaxation time. I really love to put my feet up with a snack and a cup of coffee. Bonus points for a beautiful day of overlooking all of the gorgeous foliage scenery, while my feet feel absolutely refreshed and cozy in their PEDS®.

5 – Reading/Studying. I am constantly learning and reading and catching up on things, and what better way to do that than on a couch with late afternoon sun peeking in. My feet cozy in PEDS®, and maybe a faithful companion by my side.

And that’s that! Find out more about the wonderful PEDS® at Walmart here.
