The other night, my family and I went to the local zoo’s event “Zoo Lights”. They cover the entire zoo in the most beautiful Christmas light displays. We walked around for nearly two hours in the freezing cold, and boy was I happy when we got home to my warm house! The very first thing I did was draw myself a nice hot bath, and luckily I had this super simple elf on a shelf homemade sugar scrub to use!
