There’s something you should know about me. I love, like seriously love, big comfy sweaters. If it’s cardigan style … even better.
Sometimes when I’m shopping in a store … and I see a really great, super comfy cardigan that I love … but it is not my size and it’s the last one on the rack … I’ll pick it up anyway. I’ll walk around with it. Continue to shop with it in my hand. As if I am capable of willing it … to suddenly become a fabulous comfy sweater in my actual size.
Seriously. I do this. I keep walking around and checking the size on the tag to see if maybe … just maybe it changed from an XL into a Medium.
It nevers does. But I still try.
Cozy, comfy sweaters … do this to me. They have some crazy mind altering powers over me that I do not understand.
Eventually, though, I come back to my senses … and put the sweater back on the rack. Sometimes I even say good-bye to it. Sad. I know.

I don’t want to go anywhere. I dread running errands, picking up kids from after school activites, spending a weekend afternoon in a Sports Dome for soccer tournaments, late evening meetings. Brrr. I don’t want any part of any of it right now. I just want to be wrapped tightly, securely and cozily in a big warm sweater until Spring defrosts all the land around me.
And since I refuse to go and do any real shopping outside in that polar vortex thing … I’ll share some of my online picks for some comfy warm sweaters that I’d like to get my hands on.
That’s it for now. Maybe next time I’ll hunt for cozy hoodies. Now where did I leave my marled coocoon cardi …
