What a difference a Year Makes!
Last year, at this time, we were getting ready for a virtual holiday boutique, holding a contest for Fall Favorite Flavors for Hot Cocoa Bombs, publishing a new Fall Favorite Hot Cocoa Bomb Book and making Hot Cocoa Bombs like crazy because we were doing our 1 time holiday sale of actual Hot Cocoa Bombs! This year does not look like last year. This year we are blogging a couple of times a week and I'm hoping to get some Cocoa Bombs made for my family to enjoy during the holidays. I am spending most of my time at medical facilities where my husband is still recuperating from the long term effects of Covid-19.
Although life seems pretty difficult lately, I know that I have so much to be grateful for. My husband is getting well, when so many have not. I have learned that it is possible to be sad and thankful at the same time. I am so thankful for my supportive and loving children and extended family. They are one reason I haven't thrown my hands up and decided to totally forget blogging! My daughters and I have a connection through this work that I am so reluctant to give up. And writing to you about my family and life is comforting and a great way for me to think through how I actually feel. I appreciate our readers who stick with us!
So, this year we simply want to remind you that Hot Cocoa Bombs are something that we are really proud of! We created them 7 years ago and last year they became such a huge trend! We did not become rich from them, but we love that an idea that we had became so popular! I don't know what the new trend will be this year, but after 7 years, we still love Hot Cocoa Bombs! If you haven't tried your hand at making them, we have published 2 booklets to help you out! One is our original Hot Cocoa Bomb Idea Book, available on Etsy as a downloadable booklet.
Our Fall Favorites Book is available on Etsy, also as a downloadable book. It is also available on Amazon in a Kindle format.
