Out and About.

Today we did not have as much time at home as I would have hoped. We did get some Christmas shopping done and it was very nice to be able to stroll down town, hand in hand, sipping lattes. It sure was a brisk day out and I was delighted to return to the warmth of our little cottage tonight.

After spending the entire afternoon out and about, we settled down for a little bit of time at home. I was inspired to recreate my favorite snack my Mom used to throw together on the weekends. Yup. I missed my Mom the whole time. No weekend evening at home with my family is ever complete without a little bit of this:

And that:

Probably the simplest of snacks ever, but I love it so much. I love my Mom.

Today is Dec. 1st. You know what that means?

The special Christmas "somethin',somethin'" has been arranged for. Tomorrow is the day. I'm so excited I don't think I will sleep.
