I grew up in New York, but I've spent about the last two years living in warm climates, so when I went to visit my family for Thanksgiving, I was s0 cold and hardcore wished that I had brought some warm gloves.

There's even a special set of gloves for people who always lose one! The next time I'm in New York in the cold, I know I'll be rocking my double-lined fleece gloves for sure.
