Fall 2015

With the sky turning a bit grey and the leaves starting to float to the ground, fall is here.

Winter 2014

When it comes to the Christmas season, I’m more of a traditionalist at heart. I look forward to our Christmas morning ritual of homemade cinnamon buns (the ONLY time of the year you’ll see me bake), the excitement of gift giving (and if I’m honest, receiving), the big family dinners, and the reverence of a Christmas Eve candlelight service. That being said, I also crave quiet time to just enjoy my home, my little family, and the downtime between deadlines. Those quiet moments are when I’m reminded of how truly blessed I am. I live in a wonderful country where…
