The story…

First snow in the city…  It’s my favorite day in winter!  Snow and scarfs are the two things that get me through winter every year, when there is not a warm hug waiting for me at home.

The snow covers up all the dirt, all the rust, and even all the noise of the city.  It transforms the city into a winter wonderland with only the X’mas lights and decorations sparkle through.  Everyone is bundled up, warm and fuzzy inside, and even the tourists (and I still am one in this city) look lovelier with their pom pom hats and UGGs.

You are home, warm and content.  But you know you are missing something…  The pine tree scented candles are usually your favorite, but today it just doesn’t suffice…

So you put on your favorite red moose PJ, walk to your kitchen, and decide to indulge yourself with some Chile hot chocolate.  It might not be as good as a loving kiss, but it’s gotto be a close second…
