Savoring the Holidays

Maybe because it was a childhood favorite but once the holidays roll around it becomes a nightly ritual to finish the day with a steaming cup of my favorite seasonal drink.

The holidays are a busy time – cocktail parties, family gatherings, Christmas shopping, work events – and with a new baby it is sometimes hard to find a moment to myself. I love this time of year and it’s important to savor the magic of it all before it slips away. Since I can remember my mom has always had a canister of GODIVA hot chocolate in the pantry and even as an adult it will always remind me of being young and my mom making me a cup in the afternoon. She always used whole milk (extra indulgent) and would sometimes dissolve a tiny candy cane in it to add a hint of peppermint.

GODIVA is giving back this holiday season by partnering with Toys for Tots. For every cup of hot chocolate purchased in store, Godiva will donate $1 to Toys for Tots. This initiative runs through December 15th so I encourage you to treat yourself to a luscious cup of hot chocolate and donate to this amazing cause! For those of you in Chicago, there is a store at Water Tower Place and on State Street! Godiva is always a leader in spreading love and joy through its products, whether it is the gift of chocolate or creating memories around your favorite cup of hot chocolate (like mine). It’s important to take a step back and remember the true meaning of the holiday season. Doing good for those that aren’t as fortunate as I am, that is what makes me heart happy this time of year.
