Is your fall flying by? Mine sure is! But there’s still time to make the most of it! Jennifer and I have put together a fun, fall bucket list designed to inspire you to make the most of the season. Fall is a great time to enjoy fun outdoor activities, as well as get some stuff done around the house in preparation for winter.

I remember you doing the cocoa for gifts last winter. Did you ever publish the recipe? If so/not would it be possible to get the recipe link or the recipe? That would be great gifts for my nephews


I like the I am grateful journal cover, winter festive. Where did you get that from?


Hi, April,

Thanks for your comments. For the cocoa, I ended up buying a big can of Stephen's Hot Cocoa. I tried a couple of homemade recipes and they turned out horrible. So I went with the tried and true. :) As for the journal cover...I got it at Target a few years back. I added the ribbon and tag myself.
