A December Night of Indulgence #IndulgeAnytime

One of my favorite December indulgences is a sunset stroll along the waterfront. The splendor of the sailing vessels is unmistakable.


The remaining golden glow of sunlight dances on the water and mesmerizes me with its warmth.


When the last of the fading light is gone, I’m bathed in moonlight instead. I find myself shivering and chilled, and I briskly head for the warmth of my home and the comfort of a warm, plush robe and cozy slippers.

I push the button on my Keurig and fix myself a steaming hot cup of Cafe Escapes milk chocolate hot cocoa, yet another indulgence. The smooth, rich chocolate flavor is decadent, but not overly so.


I sip my cocoa by the light of a crackling fire and savor the indulgence.


Life is good.

  1. hot chocolate with marshmallows and my kindle

  2. Mine is getting a massage, then going swimming at the warm water pool.

  3. Oooo! Everything about this post is so cozy!!

    Bailey’s, the ‘fireplace’ (a portable heater is all it is), and video games!

  4. Hot cocoa by the fire sounds nice!

  5. If I lived by the water I think I’d do the same as you do… It is so pretty!!
    I am obsessed with my coffee (okay, froofy coffee) now that it’s finally cool enough to drink it here in Phoenix. Still not cold enough for a fire though… Soon I hope!!

  6. Mmm, I could sure go for some right now! My favorite indulgence is getting a massage but that only comes once a year. Regular indulgences come with a magazine and a cup of coffee or tea.

  7. I love to indulge, too. Hope you are well.

  8. Gorgeous pics! What a beautiful spot for a stroll. We’ve been debating getting a Keurig. We drink a ton of coffee and everyone that has one seems to love it! It would be fun for hot chocolate too, ohh and I love a chai latte. Mmmm. You might have just convinced me to splurge :)
