And just to let you know, I am quite aware that Christmas season is over. :) But still, there's no denying that anything peppermint makes the day just a bit brighter, snappier, filled with a bit more spontaneity. Especially when things have recently gone back to normal after Christmas and New Year's, it's nice to curl your hands around a cup of a freshly (and I assume lovingly, because the barista was so nice and friendly!) crafted fusion of the universally-adored hot chocolate, and that special element of sweetness of peppermint. Oh yes, and the right amount of sugar in general to get you hyped up enough to get studying done, in my case at least!
And the Starbucks I am sitting in is partially to blame as well for my slight attachment to Christmas-y things...because they are playing "My Favorite Things" as we speak. ;)
So go ahead, add some peppermint to your day whenever needed (or desired...). Enjoy!
P.S. I'm so sorry I haven't blogged in the last several months. Things have been very busy especially since I started my first ever retail job (exciting I know :D). To those of you who have been waiting patiently for new posts about sugar plums and hot yoga and any other thing that's healthy and delicious (obviously I wrote those adjectives in the wrong order...), I give you a ginormous thank you basket filled with everything with the essence of peppermint.
