I have a roast in the crockpot, several dozen cookies baked and fresh buns raising. It has been a very rewarding day! Ben and I may even pull out the tree today.

The tree is such a significant symbol of the holiday season. Of course the fact that the snow decided to show up suddenly also adds to my anticipation and excitment.

I am adding a new cookie recipe to my Recipes I reccommend section.



My mom said she was proud of me.  I know as a child she told me she was proud, but I took it for granted then.  It means so much more as an adult!

I can imagine, like for me, this is a treasure searched for by most daughters.  When we stumble upon it it’s hard to know what to say other than thank you right at that moment.

But to all the mothers out there you should know that a fire works display to rival Disney World is exploding in your daughters chest!
