7 Quick Takes Friday
--- 1 ---
I've noticed this week that last year I was well into Christmas cookie baking at this point in December, but I haven't even started this year, yet. I better get busy! I've got chai spice cookies, buckeye bars, cherry drop cookies, ginger cookies, and confetti cookies on my list... But what I really am eager to try to make are Italian Christmas cookies. If I can nail those, I will be able to take a favorite of my NY childhood Christmas foods with me wherever I go. Win.
How are your Christmas lists and shopping going? I couldn't have imagined how much International living would change our Christmas shopping game. I kind of love it. All online. All early. The simplicity is so awesome. (More time for Gluwein at the Weihnachtsmarkt!) :)
I did, however, go to the Mall today and I chuckled at myself, walking through rainy 47 degree weather without a coat to the front door... because I'm a firm believer in not lugging around your winter coat in the Mall. Am I the only one?
At least they look pretty...
