Cozy Evening


For those in the northern hemisphere, this is the time we want to feel cozy. We had hail when I was coming home from choir practice yesterday and the wind was biting.

But, do we take the time to be cozy. Do we schedule cozy time?

The other evening my husband was at a friend’s house so I created cozy time. (You can see this blog post for making a cozy space.) I put some hot cocoa in a mug next to the couch, got some water and snacks, a fetched my journal, planner and the newest Bella Grace magazine. I lit a few candles, turned down the lights. and space heater on.  I gathered my fleece blanket.

One of my friends says she likes to have chocolate chip cookies and a fire, while reading

Once I was set up, I watched a Hallmark Christmas movie which is not normally my style, but perfect for cozy night. I drank my hot cocoa.

Then I read some of the Bella Grace magazine and filled out the prompts in my journal. I did a little planning for the rest of the year – what I wanted to do, feel, and enjoy.  Petting the cat, while I listened to music. I read a few chapters of my novel before my husband came home.

What would your cozy evening be like?

    Mine would be to get in my comfy, favorite pj’s, some hot cocoa, some dark chocolate (72%), A good movie, and a good book. While in bed, with the covers pulled up!!! And some scented candles burning…..

    But like you said, I rarely RARELY do this!!! Get so caught up in the day to day routine. Thank you for the reminder.

    Hi Beth,
    I’m curious what the Bella Grace magazine is? I’ve never heard of it. And, your cozy night sounds . . . cozy! And lovely!

    That sounds wonderful, Marnell!

    I get Bella Grace at Barnes and Noble. You can read about it here:

    It has photos and articles on taking in the moment.
