Yesterday I received this magazine in the mail! My first Christmas magazine, it was like…Christmas! I love, love, love Christmas. Not for the gifts, but for the spirit. I love the months leading up to the “big day” the wrapping of presents, the scent of delicious treats baking, the planning of menus and parties, and the overall feeling of the holiday.
I am a baker at heart, and I love making and blending my own chocolates for candy and treats. Thankfully I do not like too many of the things that I make or I would be as big as a house. Oddly enough I really like the raw dough from sugar cookies, and other baked goods. I know, I know, its bad for you, but knock on wood as I approach my 45 birthday I have not been stricken down by any food born illness by sampling the cookie dough.
I cannot wait to sit down this weekend in my finished( for now) house and read all of these wonderful magazines and sip a cup of cocoa! I hope wherever you are and whatever you are doing you have a wonderful weekend, enjoy your family and friends!
