I love winter—for about thirty days. During this time, winter is magical and full of my favorite traditions that capture every sense. Winter is for hot cocoa and fuzzy blankets. It’s for taking fun treks in the snow that turn your nose red and your toes cold, so when you come home all you want to do is get warm and toasty in front of a fire. Winter smells like pine needles, old Christmas ornaments, and sugar cookies baking in the oven.

This is why it’s one of my favorite times of the year. For thirty days. After this, the cold gets really old and I’m ready for sunshine and warmth again. One of my favorite ways to warm up on these chilly days is a hot cup of deliciousness. Like this Pumpkin Spice Hot Apple Cider recipe from Erin

When you can settle into your sofa, with your fingers curled around a mug of something like this, your day just seems to get better. The tangy cider is paired with a spice-filled pumpkin syrup (adapted from Julie at Savvy Eats), and it is so good!

Yup, it looks as delicious as I thought it would. All I need to do is make this, put a fire in the fireplace and enjoy it in a comfortable chair.
