How can it be that we are down to only 3 more days of 2017!? I hope you had a nice and relaxing Christmas with your loved ones. We were up in Connecticut with my family where we had a perfectly timed White Christmas! In our minds snow and Christmas go together like peanut butter and jelly, but in reality, in most places, snow is rare in December and I can’t remember the last time we had snow on Christmas in Connecticut. It was extra special this year because it was my nephew’s first Christmas and his first time seeing snow! We woke up to an inch or 2 coating the ground and big fat flakes falling while we opened presents and ate breakfast 🙂

Christmas is by far my favorite holiday and then comes New Years Eve which is highly overrated. It’s really just another day, but there is a lot of pressure to do something special to ring in the new year. This year, we will still be traveling on NYE, but the past few years we have thrown a party. When you are the one throwing the party you don’t have to go out in the cold and you are only a hop, skip and a jump away from your bed once the ball drops! Major motivation for hosting, haha!

Pink Champagne Cupcakes

No matter what you are planning this NYE. Make sure these Pink Champagne Cupcakes are part of the celebration! They are fun and fabulous! There is sweet rosé champagne in both the cupcake and the frosting giving it a hint of extra flavor.

Cheers to 2018! Talk to you next year 🙂
