It appears that I have picked up a little cold bug. Over the last couple of days, I have become close friends with the tissue box. (Too much information?) Since my throat is feeling a little scratchy this evening, I thought I'd give a hot toddy a whirl. I recently picked up a sampler box of teas at World Market; the Mighty Leaf Chamomile Citrus seemed like the perfect option for my warm drink tonight.
