Omg, you guys.  You. GUYS!

I seriously need to get out more.

I am waaaay too wrapped up in my own little world here.  It's a character flaw.  I see it.  I get it.  I need to work on it.

Kids, kids, kids... husband... house... and in between all that, it's nothing but bake, photograph, write, repeat.  Sometimes, every once in a while, there's time for a leeeeeetle bit of sleep.

Hanging out with friends?  Not so much.  Shopping?  Rarely.  Lingering over a cozy café beverage, made by someone other than moi?  What is that, again?

Whoa.  Wow.  I finally just tried, for the very first time, something that the rest of the world has been crowing about for months now.

Peppermint Mocha.

Good lord!  I know you probably already know this, but seriously.  Peppermint Mocha Lattes are so stinkin' good!  I've always known that Chocolate + Coffee = Happy, but throw in some peppermint and a whole new kinda delicious is born.  The cool, bright mint cuts through the richness of the coffee and chocolate like whoa.  It's all such a perfect balance and so wintry, cozy, and Christmas-y...

I've seriously had a peppermint mocha epiphany and I think my life will be forever changed.
