Ok ok, it’s technically already Thirsty Thursday– we’re a little behind here in the chaos of the holidays this week!
On Christmas Eve, I love nothing more than curling up in some themed pajamas with a mug of hot cocoa… spiked just a tiny bit if possible :) Cliche much? What’s your Christmas Eve tradition?
