I live in the Chicago area. It's wintertime. Therefore, it's cold. Even though I have lived here since 2000, and I would always wear a hat when building snowmen with the kids or sledding, I have not always been a hat wearer. Ear muffs, yes. Hats, no.

Well, I don't know if it's because I'm getting older and don't care as much, or if it's just because I hate being cold (always have - I was never one of those teenagers who didn't wear a coat, my mom never had to worry about me not wearing a scarf or gloves), but I have made a big decision about winter this year.

I'm going to wear a hat, one of those winter knit ones that smoosh everything down and cover my ears perfectly. And I'm going to wear it everyday, every time I go out the door. I don't care what my hair looks like when it comes off. I don't care where I'm going. I'm wearing my hat all winter long.

And I'm going to laugh at all the people who own hats but don't wear them. Because that's just stupid. I know, I used to be one of those people.

I never wore a coat until one year when I swore I my bones had goose bumps! Now I still hate wearing them, but will if I have to.

I want one of those hats with pony tail cut outs. lol My children would be horrified to see me in that though.

I buy a new hat every year, and every year I don't wear it. I am stupid.

Let's see a picture of it! I think hats (especially the knit ones) are so adorable. I wish that I lived where it was cold enough to wear one. I can't belive that you lived so close to Shaker Heights! The deal on that beautiful house was something else and I hope we can find something similar in NC. Thanks so much for your kind comments. You can catch the podcast of Sean's sermon at seacoast.org. It is very enlightening and pretty darn entertaining.
