Part of me doesn't want this week to end, because once Christmas arrives, everything is gone in a flash. The little moments are what I'll miss. Herbie's obsession with his stocking, our tradition of baking together, and these secret chocolate chip cookies. I suppose the challenge will be to make little moments in the plain old normal, busy days that don't feel so magical. These two certainly make that easier.
Some holiday things:
I made these Apple Cider Caramels via Smitten Kitchen, and they're amazing.
For your after dinner drink, a Cardamom Fashioned.
The best place to order beautifully designed gifts using wedding photos, Pinhole Press.
A beautiful piece about joy by Zadie Smith.
