[Sunday Snapshot] Hot Chocolate + Weekend Wrap Up

Happy Sunday! It’s been a rough one in this household with the flu striking us all down, so I hope you are all healthy and doing much better! Today I want to share with you something that I want at my own wedding! A hot chocolate bar! For someone who wants a winter wedding, this would be a nice treat for guests coming into the reception or cocktail area!
