The Good ❤

Oh Man! It has been a hot minute since I've been able to sit down and write a blog. But, this whole social distancing/self isolation/quarantining thing has provided me with oodles of time - to craft, to watch way too many movies and yes, to blog!

When we got home from Spring Break, I was SO looking forward to volunteering at the Worlds of figure skating, the year end show for my skating kiddos and a potential teaching contract at a local elementary school. But now all of that is on hold or completely cancelled. When I went into work last Thursday (just a week ago, but it feels like a life time ago!), I was starting to hear rumblings that we were about to experience a big change. That evening, we started hearing about all the shut downs. By 10pm pretty much everything came to an abrupt stop. Worlds was called off, my skating program was cancelled indefinitely and schools are shut down until further notice.

Friday Faves: A Whole Lot Going On

It has been a hot minute since I've done a little Friday round up, so I have lots to share! There is a whole lot going on around here lately - our reno is pretty much done so we are moving back in and decorating. I am still skating and coaching. And, I'm teaching grade 5 full time right now. Nuts! The next couple of weeks are nuts, but I am holding on for the calm after the storm. Let's get to some of my favorite things...

Peppermint Hot Chocolate (Vegan & Refined Sugar Free)

Hey hey friends! This recipe is so long overdue. I discovered this peppermint hot chocolate in early December and it was holiday perfection! It packs the perfect peppermint punch and just the right amount of chocolate. Onto the recipe, shall we? I made these all through the holiday season and I just haven't been able to stop. I still make myself a peppermint hot chocolate almost weekly! It is such a cozy little treat to have at the end of a busy day. Onto the recipe, shall we?

The recipe that I'm sharing below makes 2 hot chocolates (I'm sure you can stretch it to make 3 smaller hot chocolates if needed). You can double, triple or even halve this recipe as you need.

Music for Monday: Lennon Stella

Hello blog world! I have been dying to sit down and right a blog post recently - I just miss it so much! The time away to focus on other things is definitely needed but I always love to come back and share it on the blog! I have three posts to share this week, but as always, I'm kicking off the week with music. I have been playing this song over and over lately - I can't get enough.

Music for Monday: Never Be Back

It has been a hot minute since I've shared a music for Monday post and I am SO excited about this song! My mom discovered Leif Vollebekk last week and has been shuffling through a lot of his music. Well, this song came on shuffle and seriously after the just the first line, I knew I loved this song. Something about it hooked me right away. Since, my love has only grown and I frequently put this song on repeat (I have it on repeat right now as I'm writing).
