September means Fall for me. Though the weather hasn’t got the memo that we need some cooler weather. I am optimistic that it’s on the way sooner than later.
Cooler weather means Flavorful Hot Chocolates, New Coffee Creations and Soups.
The Kind people from Coffee mate sent over some yummy creamers for me to create with the Dark Chocolate Almond, Hazelnut and the Cinnamon Toast Crunch.
Although Coffee mate is a Coffee creamer, I used my creamer in other things besides Coffee. I have a really cool recipe coming later this week that is a cool breakfast creation. Stay tuned…..
Today’s recipe is my Almond Chocolate Goodness. I used the Dove Dark Chocolate Almond Creamer to create a yummy Hot Chocolate.

You can’t enjoy a yummy hot drink without a good book, devotional or magazine. I am excited to share Seasons of Soap. “The purpose of our SOAP journal is to navigate the seasons of life using God’s holy word. This journal contains five seasons including; finding purpose, seeking wisdom, transition, anxiety, and joy”
It’s been really good so far. I believe every woman needs a good journal and/or devotional as we go through this thing called life.
Journals and Devotionals help keep you encouraged, refreshed and motivated so we can share the same thing with someone else.
This has been a crazy season of life for the entire world. Many of us are ready to get to life as usual. But unfortunately, I don’t think that life will ever get back to normal. It will be different, but I know that many of us have grown to appreciate all that we have.
Because in an instant everything can be taken from you. Life is precious and we should value it and the people we have in it.
Live a life that is both an encouragement to others and that you can feel proud of.
If I’ve learned anything through all of this, is we have no control over our life. God is and always will be in control.
We can plan but God has the final decision for plans. At this point all we can do is pray and trust His plan and direction. “Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails” (Proverbs 19:21 NIV).
As we walk on this journey called life, we must continue to lean into God. He is faithful. “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand” (Isaiah 41:10 NIV).
In closing, I pray that all of my followers and readers are well and you are keeping your spirits high. God’s got it all in His hands. Nothing can happen without his approval. Trust His plan and direction and watch how much better it will all turnout.
Take a minute, grab a book and enjoy your favorite Fall drink. You will feel better.
