:image: this little trusty notebook has carried all my ideas this month
the BIG holiday is upon us. i have been trying to squeeze every ounce of hours out of my days lately, just so i have something else to check off my list. i adore being in my kitchen preparing treats i have not attempted before (so far so good!) and dressing it all up in pretty packaging. i think, as i am getting older, i love mostly now the foods that holidays force us to make/eat rather than the gift aspect. i get more excited about the gathering of our family and special friends around the table more than anything else. enjoy your weekend and merry christmas :)
