Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas to you, all of my beautiful followers! I know I have been strangely silent these past few weeks, but I wanted you to know I have not left you!! I am still cooking and have many fun things to share with you!! However, this year I got to finally cross the country to see my beloved family. It has been over a YEAR since I have been”home.” So the weeks leading up were crazy with preparation, and now I am focused on simply “being.” On listening to the men jam on their acoustic guitars, to playing Legos with one nephew or trying to get giggles out of the other infant nephew, to playing “Frozen” with the niece…cuddling with my other puppy, baking with my mom, or watching my dad figure out his new remote control helicopter. To playing Tetris Jenga with my brothers or just sitting close to them on the favorite couch. I’m soaking it all in, and I hope you are doing the same.

All that to say, recipes are coming soon. But until then, rejoice with me over family, the birth of our savior, and breaks to simply breathe. ❤️

First family photo since I was a kid…this is the special family I am enjoying!!
