This fireplace at The Grove Park Inn, which is one of our favorite hotels located in Ashville, NC has TWO humongous  fireplaces to keep guests toasty. Obviously you’re stuck at home and not Grove Park Inn, so just use your imagination.

Finally, hot beverages, preferably hot cocoa, because you get warm and chocolate will make you a little more joyous.  See my fav recipe from Honey and Fitz


Polar Express Hot Chocolate (aka the BEST hot chocolate you’ve ever tasted) Recipe:

–1 can of sweetened condensed milk (14 oz)
–2 cups of bittersweet chocolate chips
