So, incase you haven’t noticed it’s been really cold out. Everyone tells me that I should be used to this having grown up in Vermont, and I like to act like I am and it’s not a big deal, but the truth is, I usually would just run from my warm house to my warm car to another warm building. Not any more. Now that I am officially car less I have a 15-20 minute walk to work each morning- over a windy bridge no less. So over the past couple of weeks I have become something of a self appointed expert in staying warm, and now I’m going to share these tips with you guys! *Full disclosure: the quality of these pictures is not good, but hopefully you’ll get the idea

Suggested but not required: immediately upon arrival at your destination, strip off top layer and a half and rush to coffee maker/tea pot/ hot beverage of your choice.
Good luck and stay warm!
