Hot chocolate has been one of my favorite cold weather beverages ever since I was little. It’s just the perfect chocolaty treat for a chilly winter day – or really even a hot winter day and you just want a hit of something decadent and delicious.
One of my favorite things about the holiday’s is taking part in traditions. I don’t think I’ve carved a pumpkin since high school. I wasn’t able to carve one last year due to a ton of traveling in October/November, so it was very high on my list to do this year now that I have a job that keeps me local.
Since the Royals made the World Series playoffs, my pumpkin carving date with the Firefighter turned into a watch the Royals and carve our pumpkins date. For not having carved a pumpkin in close to 10 years (a mind blowing statement right there), I think I did a pretty damn good job.
And yes, I’m pretty sure the wine helped with my carving abilities :).
