These Things Take Forever

Here is a video for a song called "The First Day of My Life". The message is very simple yet touches your heart. The video portrays exactly the feeling that you get when you hear this song. You see people with their loved ones and smiles appear on their faces when they listen to this feel-good song.

So if you wanna be with me
With these things there's no telling
We just have to wait and see

Holding on to the Holidays

In my attempt to hang on to the spirit of gift giving, I wanted to share something that I got for my coworkers a couple weeks ago at the end of my internship. I really loved my team and wanted to give them something they could all enjoy. The girls all love to have a cup of anything with them at all times during the day to keep them going whether it be coffee, tea or our team hot chocolate sessions. They really LOVE their hot beverages.

Some months ago, I was in the city with my girlfriends when we went to grab some dessert at Max Brenner in Union Square. While the rest of the group indulged in banana crepes and molten chocolate cakes, I decided to go with a nice simple cup of hot chocolate. Enter... the hug mug. Yes! It's really called that!

The picture explains it all. I knew when thinking of a gift for my team that this was perfect for them! A little harder to use while at work but I'm sure they'll put it to good use at home!
