I went and saw Tangled last night. It was wonderful! I couldn't believe I was paying $10 to watch a Disney cartoon, but it was definately worth it, an unexpected surprise. We snuck in white chocolate candy cane kisses and had an innocent girls night out. I was so into the movie that I felt like a little kid again, dreaming and wishing on stars. I think that really is the goal of this whole process of finding bliss: to have childlike dreams, trust, hopes, and wishes again.
Of course, there are some perks to growing up, such as learning new flavors and savoring them. I just discovered my new favorite flavor combo of caramel and sea salt a few weeks ago here. I found this recipe, and I am dying to try it: Lex's [spiked] Italian Hot Chocolate.
Also, I am in love with these adorable wine tags from poptags and would love to decorate any gifted wine bottles with these. All the while, listening to Pandora's "Baby It's Cold Outside" Radio is getting me in the Christmas shopping mood. This is the first year I have ever bought my presents online, and it is so much fun! I keep getting packages in the mail and getting surprised by what's inside. I highly recommend it, it takes off the stress as well. I am still going to do my annual mall shopping, of course, but this way I won't have quite so many people to buy for and can enjoy the atmosphere more.
