Have a Lovely Christmas

It's Friday!!! Yeah! I have a 5-day weekend ahead of me and I am soooo looking forward to it. Christmas is in a few days and I am looking forward to spending time with my family. I have such a busy schedule for the next few days so I am going to take some time off from the blog. My day designer is packed with ideas and tasks that I want to complete for the next few days.

I am hosting Christmas Eve dinner with my husband's family. His grandfather passed away earlier this year and his 88 year old grandmother always cooks Christmas Eve dinner for us so this year I decided to take the reigns since it has been such a rough year for her. I am hoping that this will help her a little. This has been her first holiday season without Grandpa Leroy. It's going to be different for us all.

One of my co-workers shared this recipe with me. It is called slow cooker pumpkin white hot chocolate. I am really looking forward to making this for Christmas Eve dinner so fingers crossed! I know that it sounds like it should be more of a fall kind of drink but why not. 

I hope that you all enjoy your holidays with your families and thank you all for reading my blog. Honestly, I have my moments when I don't feel inspired and don't want to write anymore but I keep going because I want to stay committed to what I am doing and I love meeting new like-minded friends on here. 

Please enjoy your holidays and Merry Christmas! See you in January!
