Holy crap. I feel like just yesterday I was flipping graduating college and here I am almost four years out of school and still no idea what I’m doing. Just last week I called my dad to ask him what to claim my IRA Rollover as (so boring), and he was like, “I don’t know, why don’t you call your financial planner”? DUH. That’s her job, but I still call my parents if Google can’t tell me the answer.
Resolutions. I don’t do them. Moving on.
TO THIS WINE.
How I’m so late to the mulled wine game, I don’t know but it’s my new favorite cold weather beverage because it’s so cozy and warm and delicious. If cozy, warm, and delicious don’t sell you on this mulled wine then I don’t know what will. Boozy? Are you sold yet?
You can totally skip on the bourbon if that’s not your thing, I promise your mulled wine will be equally as amazing.
