Hot chocolate and candy canes

My favorite treat in the winter months is hot chocolate.

It’s that one thing that just brings all the warm childhood memories to life again.

I have been making time specifically to watch some favorite movies and think about things that I did as a child.

Making sugar cookies, building snowmen, having snowball fights, and jumping in the snow with the dogs and my little brother.

We had these sleds that we use to pull each other around on…

and when we got to the top of the hill we would race to the bottom.

We always had candy canes on our Christmas tree.

We always had marshmallows in our hot chocolate.

Memories like these bring so many feelings.

This time of the year do yourself a few favors…

  • Spend time with your family
  • Enjoy the moments that you are in now
  • Create memories that you will cherish
  • Remember to relax and destress as well!

I started making my protein shakes as a hot chocolate with cinnamon an some candy cane crumbles.

Yummy, healthy and good for the soul.

It’s moments like these that I wish I didn’t live so far from my family.

There are a lot of miles between Tennessee and New York.

Hopefully sooner than later, my parents will be living so much closer.

I can’t wait!

I hope you have a happy holiday my friend.
