Thank you to Hyggelight: The Growing Company for providing me with product in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions shared below are my own.

The term "hygge" pronounced "hoo-ga" is a concept you may be learning about for the first time today. I was recently introduced to hygge by a friend who told me she was reading a book all about it! The more I looked into it, the more I realized hygge is becoming more and more popular in the United States. The Growing Candle has developed a way to incorporate two essential lifestyle elements into one, stunning candle.

Another snow day? That's not something you'll hear me say very often. We live in the Piedmont of North Carolina, where it rarely snows.Other areas around us are much more likely to see a significant accumulation of snow during a winter weather event, and it often leaves the kids disappointed that we didn't get any white stuff to play in. I have a love/hate relationship with snow. Growing up in New Jersey, I was used to life going on as usual if it snowed, unless there were several feet of snow or a blizzard.

Spiced Rum Hot Toddy- Thirsty Thursday


Okay you guys, I want to start this post by saying I am not a big drinker. If you knew me before I had kids, that statement may surprise you, but these days I may have a wine cooler or similar drink every few weeks/months. 
So, now you may be wondering why on Earth I am posting a hot toddy recipe. Well, it's been pretty cold here in Connecticut, we've all had some sort of cold that goes away for a bit and then comes right back, and the biggest reason of all-I heard it was Hot Toddy day last Thursday and I'm pretty much late for everything!
