I’m so excited that it finally feels and looks like winter! I woke up this morning to almost two feet of snow, and I couldn’t wait to be outside enjoying the rare snow day. I immediately threw on a million and one layers, bounced outside, and shot a couple of pictures to share of this gorgeous winter wonderland. Then the real fun started- sledding! I have the perfect sledding hill right up the road from me and I spent a good two hours with my puppy and Sweet Baboo speeding into snow banks. It was glorious fun!

Of course the best part of playing in the snow is coming inside for hot chocolate (especially when it’s boozy with mini marshmallows!) and then snuggling up for a good flick.

I know there are a million and one amazing homemade hot chocolate recipes floating across the web, especially on Pinterest. I’m plain and simple though- powdered dark chocolate mix! Of course how you fix it makes all the difference, my specialty is made using either marshmallow vodka or Godiva liqueur,  almond milk, and tons of mini marshmallows. Delicious and addictive! I’m so excited to use my new mug from Vistaprint with my gorgeous logo from Moda Illustrated. It makes me smile!

After making my hot chocolate I cuddled up under this blanket hand stitched by my grandmother for my favourite movie ever Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back; the snow on Hoth makes it the most appropriate snow day movie.

I hope everyone is having an equally lovely weekend! If you’re being hit by Storm Jonas as well, stay warm.
