I will be baking up a storm.  “What have I gotten myself into?”  
I ask myself, before I’ve even started!

Merry Christmas!  I hope you all have the Merriest Christmas.  Full of family, love and light. For me the joy in Christmas is all about Love and Light!  The Birth of Jesus.  He is Love and He is Light.  It is easy to get caught up in the busyness of the season.  The decorating the baking and the buying.  But today I just want to pause, to be still and just be grateful for the greatest gift of all.

See you all next year!
