Hot Cocoa is my favorite hot drink during the colder months especially during the holidays. I love having a cup of hot cocoa while looking at the Christmas tree. It's so peaceful. In speaking of lights, I used to love riding around town when I was a child to look at the Christmas lights in neighborhoods. I still love doing that :)

As I sip my hot cocoa and look at the Christmas tree, I reflect on past Christmases. I think of some of my favorite holiday traditions over the years and I look forward to share those traditions with my own family someday.
A few early birthday candles :)
I will be posting again on December 26th or December 27th, but I plan on reading, responding, and commenting on blogs.
