Hi, I’m Melissa

I happen to live in one of the cloudiest and coldest cities in the US – appropriately located in a state shaped like a mitten. I also happen to have seasonal affective disorder. But true story: I have learned to not only survive, but actually enjoy, winter!

It took a decade of learning, plus a move to a sunnier locale and back, before I found effective ways to manage winters. Here, I share resources, tips, and inspiration that help get me through the cold, hard months of winter and even darker times of depression. 

If you’re feeling alone in this season, I hope you know you are NOT alone. Whether you’re struggling with year-round depression, trudging your way through the cold seasons, or simply looking to make winter a little more enjoyable, welcome. You can also join the community on Instagram, Tik Tok, and Facebook – wherever you like to hang out!

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
