December is the hardest month for me when it comes to blogging. I wish I could say it’s because I spend all my evenings at fabulous holiday parties and have no time to write. The truth is that all I want to do after work is go home, wrap myself up in my Snuggie, and watch “Love Actually” on the couch while drinking hot beverages spiked with 100-proof Schnapps products.
I’ve seen this December Photo Challenge floating around on Instagram, and decided to steal it for my blog. Even if I can’t bring myself to write quite as often this month, I can probably set down the bottle of Perma Frost long enough to post a picture and a few words every day.
Of course I’m starting this challenge off in typical Heather fashion: Three days late and photographing the wrong thing. The thing is, I don’t have any hot chocolate in the house right now so I had to take a picture of my coffee instead. However, there is enough peppermint mocha creamer in there to basically qualify it as hot chocolate:
Right after I took this the cat rubbed against my elbow and my coffee got all over the couch, but it’s OK because it’s impossible for me to be in a bad mood when I’m near twinkle lights. (I’m considering wrapping myself in them before I go to Walmart tonight.) Happy third day of December!
