We’re finally getting back into the groove of things around here after our trip to West Virginia for Thanksgiving! I rarely get to break away to visit home much, so it basically makes my entire year when I get to see so many people I love in one place. This also marks the second year that Jared has visited my family for Thanksgiving, and since he grew up with Houston weather, this thing called “seasons” that I’m used to is a new thing for him, ha!

Last year he got lucky enough to see snow because a massive cold front came through just in time for our visit, which also left me having to purchase more appropriate winter clothes while I was there (I know, it’s sad that I lived the first twenty years of my life there and couldn’t anticipate that better). Not to mention my Dad got verrrrry excited about showing Jared around for the week and the next thing I know we were hitting every tourist spot and scenic overlook between Charleston and Snowshoe. All I had with me were heeled boots that were NOT made for those 7am-9pm daily extravaganza.

This year I swore I would be prepared (it turns out I was actually over-prepared, doesn’t it always happen that way?!) and it ended up being in the 60’s except for one or two days, so we set out to make sure I got good use of my winter wear and perfect Born comfort boots (super comfy, I wore them the whole week!) while we could. For someone that’s not used to seasons, this means we hunted down the biggest pile of leaves still left to play in. Oh, and I also forced my Mom to make her blog photo debut, too, muahaha! No, but seriously…

Simple Hot Spiced Wine Recipe

Hands down one of my favorite things about winter is that every day is a perfect excuse for a warm drink. I love hot chocolate as much as the next dessert loving gal, but sipping on a spiced cocktail just can’t be beaten! That said, this hot spiced wine recipe is super simple to make, and you can personalize it to make it as spicy or as sweet as you’d like.

Do you all have any go-to drink recipes that you always make for the holidays and winter months? I know there are a ton of renditions of the staple spiced wine, but ours not only has Mirassou Cabernet Sauvignon (one of our favorite red wines for sharing!), but it also has added brandy for some additional flavor. Not only is this drink beautiful, but it’s perfect for sharing with family and friends!…

Hey friends! I’ve totally failed at keeping up while we’re home visiting family this week, but this is time I’ll never get back so we’re going to take the rest of the week of to enjoy it. I did want to at least say Happy Thanksgiving, and be sure to check back tomorrow evening because I’ve already written out alllllll of the my favorite Black Friday deals to hit up! Mama’s gotta get her shopping on, you know what I mean?! Except I’m totally not die hard enough for standing in lines, so I’ll have links to my favorites for you to click and shop right at home.

Until then, sending you lots of love and thanks to you as our blog family, and of course, there would need to be a turkey ice cream cake to mark the occasion. Sugar is in the name after all, ha! xox
