We don’t have our Christmas tree yet, and I’m afraid not much decorating is going to happen this year. With all of life’s happenings swirling around, a woman has to chose what’s important and cross everything else off the list. Busy seasons of life call for as much simplifying as possible.
We will get our tree eventually, and happily, crafting Christmas cookies will also remain on my personal “to do” list.
Today I’m getting organized and planning a weekend of baking with the help of some of my favorite people.
Are you baking this year? What’s your favorite Christmas cookie? You know, the one you would NEVER ever leave off the tray?
