bjicecream Even in the midst of winter there is something about ice cream that just calls to me. The creamy texture, the way it melts on my tongue–eating ice cream can be a sensual experience.  A reminder of my single days comes in the form of Ben & Jerry’s Phish Food. Back when my friend worked at the shop and I’d come in near the end of his shift for a cool, creamy treat on a hot night. Even today, when I’m feeling a little down or needing to remember that there’s more to life than being a mom–I go back to the ice cream and remember walking down dark city streets, listening to music, and thinking that life really is grand.

chocolateimg_2725It seems fitting that this would start as the old year dies and the new year is born. For many people, today is a day to celebrate with friends and family while remembering the events of the past 12 months. This past year has brought me much growth and many new insights about myself and the world around me.My goal is to use this space to remind myself of the little things that can be done to make every day a little special and to provide a minute of pampering in my otherwise busy life.

It’s a cold day here so we are starting our celebration with a lovely mug of hot cocoa. Today’s flavor is  Ghirardelli Chocolate Hazlenut Cocoa. For an extra special indulgence, we make it with half and half as well as milk and top with marshmallows or whipped cream and cocoa powder and cinnamon.
