The boys each had a friend [two brothers] over for a play date after school. So I thought today, Day 2 of our advent calendar, would be the perfect day for "hot chocolate + peppermint sticks". The boys used the chocolate peppermint sticks to stir their marshmallows and they liked how the chocolate melted in to their hot chocolate.
Thank you so much for all the advent calendar love [tweets, pins, link love]. I really appreciate all the thoughtful and encouraging words you, my friends, leave for me in this space. I'm feeling so inspired this holiday season and I decided today that my goal for this month is to EMBRACE + ENJOY all that this month entails [even the craziness] and to write a simple post every day in December. Hope you all are getting excited for the holidays, too!
