It’s finally here! My favorite season of all AND my first ever giveaway. I love strolling the malls decked out in holiday splendor, wrapping up in warm scarves and strolling the neighborhoods glistening in colored lights, and sipping hot cocoa by the fire. Oh wait…I’m not sure I’ve ever done that, but I sure do love a rich cup of hot chocolate. In honor of the season of giving…
That night there were shepherds staying in the fields nearby, guarding their flocks of sheep. Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lord’s glory surrounded them. They were terrified, but the angel reassured them. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David! Luke 2:8-11
I’m giving away some of my favorite things to one lucky reader to share with someone they love. (Is it just me, or is that famous Sound of Music tune singing in your thoughts, too?) That’s right, I’m sending you twin gifts. One to keep, and one to give away. Holiday cheer never tasted so good! Since Christmas begins with “C,” coincidentally, so do my favorite things. I love carols, candles, COCOA, CARDAMOM, and COFFEE! Since I believe in supporting the local economy, each of these items will be shipped to you straight from their origin, Costa Rica. I realize the photo includes Hershey’s Cocoa, only because on shopping day natural cocoa wasn’t in sight. From me to you: 100% natural cocoa powder nationally grown and distributed, which I use in all my baked goods. (Especially delicious in brownies!) Additionally, you’ll receive ground cardamom, my favorite ingredient in homemade chai, and a bag of my trusty morning java grounds.
