Winter Bucket List: 100 Things To Do In Winter

Happy Winter! Yes, the days are shorter and we’re less likely to get all that Vitamin D we crave, but that doesn’t mean we’re doomed to a terrible three months.

I love making lists of ways to celebrate things, and the seasonal changes are no different! I made you a list of one hundred things to add to your Winter To Do List, and a printable (colorful) PDF with my own ridiculous illustrations on it. You can download that for free below! (Or if you’re an Uncustomary Babe, you can go to the Content Upgrade page and download it with your special password you get for being a part of the tribe.)
