Have you been shopping and shopping, wrapping, addressing those Christmas cards, baking, crafting, decorating the house(not just the tree) and saying to yourself “I cannot wait for Christmas to be over”. Go ahead, admit it….it’s okay! If you are reading my blog, you have taken a few moments to do something other than “Holiday stuff”.
I always obsess about the holidays and wanting it picture perfect and it always ALL falls into place. It really is about spending time with our families and reflecting on all the joys in our lives. I look back on my childhood and miss my grandparents SO much and I find peace knowing they will always be with me. Some of my recipes are my grandmother’s and date back generations. My LOVE for baking and cooking was bestowed on me from my grandmother-what a wonderful gift she gave me…
I recently saw this embroidery file from
and knew I had to have it… It reminds me of the reason for this wonderful time of year. My 4 year-old niece, Miss Kate, LOVES, LOVES anything PINK! I quickly embroidered it and gave it to her! In her mind, trust me, Christmas SHOULD be pink.
For me the Holidays just would not be the same without LOTS of baking… Here is a cake I made using Nordicware’s Christmas Wreath pan=LOVE it!!!
From my home to yours(or my computer to yours) I wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas!!
