Week Re-Cap

Reminder to vote if you haven't already!
Happy Wednesday! What a cold week it has been. I finally went on a walk around my neighborhood yesterday after being inside for more than 48 hours due to the snow. This weekend I'm taking Monday off to go on a little trip with Julia, which feels much needed. It's also less than a month until I fly home for a bit and I'm pumped. Denver is starting to go back into lockdown and that plus the sun setting earlier has been a bit of a challenge mentally. But we're getting through it. How are y'all doing? — xoxo darling, Hayden
The leaves are basically all gone & I miss 'em already. 
Tried a few bits from Enstrom Candies.
Finally got takeout from Yak & Yeti.
I feel like downtown Littleton looks like Stars Hollow in fall.
Had a New Age Cheesesteak on Saturday for lunch.
SNOW!
Decorated this bad boy for Vlogoween.

Fall Moon Milk Recipe

I spotted this recipe (here & here) on Pinterest and thought...let's try it! But I wanted to change it up by making it more of a hot chocolate and going a little less crazy on the spices. Plus, I'm a sucker for whipped cream so I swapped out the marshmallows. One thing I want to make note of, patience is key with this one! You want that silky, creamy drink so let it heat and don't add everything at once. But if you do it properly, this drink is delightful!
