Cotton Candy Cookies (and lovely Save the Dates)

I spent last weekend working on my save the date cards.  For those of you who don’t obsessively watch wedding related TV shows, read “tell all” books by celebrity wedding planners or bridal magazines or who have managed to opt out of the more materialistic bits of wedding planning, save the dates are the cards […]

Peppermint Sandwich Cookies and a very Merry Christmas

I’d consider myself pretty middle of the road when it comes to Christmas – I have a playlist of Christmas songs I like, but I do find the all Christmas carols all the time thing right around Christmas day to be incredibly crazy (of course, only in America would you find such gems of Christmas […]
