Holiday Down Time
And just like that… Christmas is has come and gone and I haven’t blogged for almost a week. After not even touching any Christmas decorations until the Tuesday before Christmas Day, the holiday spirit overtook me and I went into full-on Christmas mode. I shopped, wrapped gifts, and baked to my heart’s content. Here is proof:
I made clementine cake, mini mince pies and mini apple pies, a yule log, chai gingerbread cookies and white chocolate cranberry cookies. (I will share the recipe for the white chocolate cranberry cookies sometime next week, because they are super delicious and it is great to have a few logs of the dough stored away in the freezer!)
I have also been reflecting on 2011 and started to plan for 2012. I love ending & beginning a year. It is such a good time to reflect on the year past and to look forward to a fresh one. More than ever before, I feel aware of the uncertainties in life due to some big events that happened in 2011 (some that I have blogged about, some that I have not). But I also feel more aware than ever that I choose my own responses and my own path and that I want to align how I spend my life with my values.
If that sounds vague, yes it is… :) I will share a bit more over the next week or so. I am super excited for 2012!
I hope your Christmas was lovely!!
