As the years have gone by, my love for hot chocolate has not necessarily decreased; I still enjoy a good cup of cocoa on these colder days. But my goodness, my love for cider has increased dramatically. I actually crave hot cider more often than I crave hot chocolate! Can you believe it?
But there's something about curling up with a steaming mug of apple-y, cinnamon-y good-ness on a cold night, when you just want to snuggle with your husband's wolf blanket and a good book. I love the smell, I love the warmth, and I love the comfort such a setting gives me.
Mmmm . . .
