Quick: name a few things you love about winter. If one of your top picks is hanging out with glass of wine and a group of friends, reading a favorite book while cuddled up in a plush armchair, or getting cozy with a special someone, all in front of a roaring fire, then we’re heading over to your place this weekend.
