I'm an introvert. I love almost nothing more than staying home with friends (or even by myself), breaking out tea, knitting, wine, movies, games, and hanging out in my slippers. But I often feel anxiety over this - I'm young! I should be going out!
As colder and darker evenings roll around, I'm trying to let myself savour staying in, guilt free - to make it more of an occasion. Last night Seb and I stayed in, and while Seb studied, I knit and padded around the house, making popcorn on the stove, eating the last crumbs of the dark chocolate chili cookies, and making my favourite tea. It was such a nice night, and one I hope to repeat many evenings this winter.
