Sugar and Spice and All Things Nice

Each time Jon and I sit down to watch a movie together it somehow ends up to be a movie where someone dies or something really tragic happens! Considering some of my favorite movies are A Walk to Remember, Titanic, and The Vow...well you can see sometimes these movies happen by choice. And others just look good (and they are good) but something happens and they are just super sad! We've been really contemplating the value of life and how important it is that we make the most of every moment cause you never know which will be your last.
Lately we've been challenging each other to make the most of everything and to do things we don't normally do because sometimes we need a little extra sugar and spice in our everyday lives. We are trying to save up money to move into an actual apartment but Jon likes to buy me Chai Tea sometimes in the morning before work and instead of fret that we just spent money, I choose to savor the moment. And even without spending money we can all do something a little out of the ordinary. Go for a walk, read a nice book, dance in the kitchen to a couple of your favorite songs, ride a bike, have coffee or tea with someone, play a game, have a pillow fight, eat the candy you've been saving all year, take pictures, or whatever else you can think of!
The point is to make memories out of moments. Don't let life pass by and leave you wondering what the heck you ever did!

Oh, and here's a sugar and spice recipe to get you started. ;) We made this yesterday!

Spiced Tea
2 cups Tang (orange powdered drink mix)
1 cup Lipton Instant Lemon Tea mix
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cloves
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Stir or shake all together. Add desired amount of powder to hot water for a nice cup of tea.
