Hearty Chicken Noodle Soup

Spring is officially here, and with spring comes allergies and sickness. I've actually been home from work for the past two days with a cold/fever. It's been pretty miserable, but I whipped up some chicken noodle soup yesterday that made me feel like I was little and being taken care of by my mom. 

My mom always used to make us "little noodle soup" when we were sick. There is something so nostalgic and cozy about the soup to me. 

Anyways, I put my own little spin on it and thought I'd share with you guys.
