Orange Hot Chocolate

orange hot chocolate

We had orange hot chocolate with our cookies last night.

[It tasted a little like lip gloss?]

There's banana bread baking in the oven now (that I can not wait to smother in almond butter), all of which I had some help from each of my children
as we rocked out to Sgt Pepper's before two left for school and two stayed behind for a little while longer.

The early autumn sun glows onto my laundry basket- I'm tempted to take a picture it's so beautiful. The bowls and spoons from baking await my hand-wash with a comforting domestic livelihood,

and the cliff I had been teetering at for the past few days

no longer feels as if I'm here to fall-off,

I've decided I'll fly-away

instead.



and

We have winners!

The Vintage Pearl $75 gift certificate winner is... Hestermania!
The handknit-by-me fingerless gloves winner is... Zdub

(I'll share what I chose to put on my bracelet when it comes, and as of this posting, Love has raised $3,274 and is only $1,726 away from her birthday goal! Thank you thank you!)

  4. I want to come over and drink orange hot chocolate with you.

    If I bring a sweet-smelling baby with me?

  5. Orange hot chocolate? Yum! I tried a homemade pumpkin latte yesterday, and then my toddler stole it (thank goodness there was little-to-no coffee in there). But a pumpkin hot chocolate sounds delish too, right?

    I love fall. LOOOOVE fall. And that you're flying <3

    xoxo glad you're flying, steph.

  14. I was so exited about orange hot chocolate until it turned into lip gloss hot chocolate. I did discover Cold Stone Creamery reduced sugar hot chocolate. It only has 70 calories, but it tastes like 300. It wont make any cliffs go away, but you may forget about them for a bit.
