Now see, even drinking this hot chocolate has affected what I am typing. That last sentence wasn't 'delicious' at all, yet I used the word to describe the sentence. Next thing I know, I'll be calling cleaning the toilet delicious (hopefully that won't ever happen...).
By the way, the picture above is not the actual dreamy hot chocolate that was crafted lovingly by my mom. For some reason I couldn't post the picture I took, so I decided to Google an image of peppermint hot chocolate and decided that this one most accurately displays my personal ideal image of the drink!
Not only is homemade hot chocolate amazing, but also homemade hot chocolate while it is snowing outside!
We just had our first snow of the year (super late, I know, but Seattle's usually been like that; oh well! :) ), so that was probably what got my mom excited about making the cozy beverages for my brother and I. Like most snowfalls in the Seattle area, this one didn't last very long as it didn't leave very much powder on the ground. But still, it was uber lovely to watch the light, quiet shower of joy fall in my neighborhood, and to watch the entire scene transform into a mini-Winter Wonderland before my eyes.
Things like that don't happen often, at least where I live. More than that, things as drastically beautiful and quickly transformative as that don't happen very much in life in general.
So, there's no reason not to enjoy the falling snow while it lasts, and to have that warm mug of chocolate-y goodness in hand as the event unfolds before you.
Have a happy day!
