The Eve Before Christmas:


      It's Monday again, but this one doesn't feel like your typical start of the week because it's the eve before Christmas! I had one of the best weekends of my life before today arrived and for perhaps another first in my life... I'm not dreading the holiday. Spending time with friends that become family, celebrating, and generally getting in the Christmas spirit will do that to you I suppose. Today I'll be enjoy another one of my favorite holiday past times, baking cookies and creating new flavors of home made truffles. I've already utilized over 7 pounds of butter over the weekend and I think that today will be no exception to that type of behavior. Happy Holidays everyone, find beauty in all that you see, happiness in whatever you do, and wonder at the idea of an upcoming new year!
