As you may have guessed, I have a pretty large Disney mug collection. But one thing that was notably absent from my collection was any sort of Christmas or holiday mug! I was very fortunate that things soon changed. I signed up for a holiday mug swap through one of the blogging groups I’m in and totally lucked out with my partner!
I was matched with Marsha, who blogs at Faith and Fitness with Marsha Apsley. It was awesome getting to know her a little bit through email before we exchanged packages. Not only did she send me the absolute cutest Disney Christmas mug, she also included some cookies, dark chocolate Hershey kisses, and Christmas earrings!
The front of the mug features Mickey and Minnie in their Christmas outfits, riding on a sled (pulled by Pluto of course!). The back of it is just as cute. It says “Warm winter wishes” and it’s surrounded by snowflakes. There is also a poinsettia design on the inside of the mug.
What’s in my cup: Around the holidays, it has to be hot cocoa for me! I love dark chocolate cocoa best, but also anything chocolate and peppermint. Or if it’s while I’m relaxing in the evening I might spike my hot cocoa with a bit of peppermint schnapps or Grand Marnier 😉
What I’m reading: I’ve just started the book Never Never, which is the selection for our January Disney Book club meeting. I’m still at the beginning, but from the back cover it is described as being the story of James Hook and his time in Neverland. It supposedly answers the question of how he grew up and became one of the only adults in all of Neverland. I’ve heard good things so I’m excited to dig into this one!
What’s in your mug this month? And have you read any good books lately?
