BIG News & a Celebratory Drink: Apple Cider Bourbon cocktail

Sunday, February 1, 2015 2 0

I’ve been a little MIA this past month! I alluded to some stressful family stuff with my step-daughter that we went through at the beginning of the month which we’re now on the other side of (thankfully!).

Last weekend was the first weekend that J and I had together just us since the beginning of December! Can you believe it?! We were both so excited to have some quality alone time that we began joking that the weekend would be The Best Weekend Ever.

Little did I know, J had something planned that would make it the best weekend ever! On Saturday, J told me he’d like to go down to the beach to take a timelapse video of the tide coming in – this is something that he loves doing, so I didn’t think anything of it. Once we got to the beach he asked me to stand in front of the camera so he could compose the shot. Then he came next to me, said some beautiful things, and got down on one knee to propose!!!


I was SO surprised!!! And so wonderfully happy. J is my best friend and my biggest support and cheerleader. My heart is absolutely bursting with love for that guy. I can’t wait for the rest of our lives together!!

Here’s a cocktail to celebrate! This drink is very simple to throw together. All you need is hard apple cider, bourbon, and a slice of fresh ginger.
