National Hot Chocolate Day

"Love is like swallowing hot chocolate before it has cooled off. It takes you by surprise at first, but keeps you warm for a long time." - Author Unknown

It's National Hot Chocolate Day!

It's no surprise that on National Hot Chocolate Day it snowed unexpectedly. Really, it's like the two things were meant to be together. And I've definitely had my fair share of the drink throughout the years, considering I live in a region of the world where it can potentially be snowy for up to seven months.

It's true what "they" say, however: every time I have ever taken that initial big sip of my hot chocolate, the velvety heat from it really does catch me off guard as it warms my entire physical and psychic being in the deepest, darkest days of winter.

Like love, I suppose.

Without the calories.

Or mini-marshmallows.

Happy National Hot Chocolate Day!
