I don't know about you, but now that the holidays are over, I'm ready for winter to end and spring to come as soon as possible. I feel as if I've become a hermit in my own house, I'm suffering from a serious case of cabin fever. But thankfully, there appears to be a light at the end of the cold, dark, winter tunnel. According to our favorite groundhog Punxsutawney Phil, his shadow is suggesting only six more weeks of winter. Let's all cross our fingers it's a quick six weeks. M'kay? So the end of winter countdown has officially begun for me, and you better believe I'm fighting my best fight to combat the all too familiar winter "blahs" that typically get me down this time of year. -- Emily Elling
