First, we light tropical scented candles. Next, we turn on some tropical music to really set the mood. Oh, and of course we have to light a fire in the fireplace to keep us feeling warm and fuzzy!

Then we pour some Argentinian Malbec, yum and make a super beachy inspired dinner!! {Ahi Tuna & Banana Salad with fresh ginger and banana dressing} Sorry no recipe b/c the recipe was only floating in my head!!
