Currently: December

Reading this fantastic article, “The Postpartum Shopaholic” about finding yourself (sometimes for the first time in a while) and wondering what that person should wear.

Tempted to make a set of these fleece ponchos for my three nieces. Ok, and maybe this one for me.

Can’t wait to bake my annual Chanukah cookies using this great recipe from the Spice and Spirit Cookbook.

Basic Cookie Dough
3 eggs
1 cup margarine
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
4 cups flour
2 cups icing sugar (confectioners sugar)
3 tsp. baking powder
Yields 7 to 8 dozen (if dough rolled thin, 4-6 dozen if kids are making them:)
Preheat Oven to 350 degrees.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large mixer bowl, beat eggs. Add margarine and vanilla. Add flour and baking powder and mix well.
Roll out dough on a floured board to 1/4″ thickness and cut into desired shapes. Place on cookie sheet.
Press sprinkles or colored food glitter onto cookies.
Bake 10 – 12 minutes or until slightly browned.
Remove from cookie sheet to cool.

Imagining what it would be like to join this five day creative retreat in a French chateau.

Wondering if women-only gatherings are gaining speed. How many girl gang Whatsapp group chats are you a part of?

Watching previews of La LaLand! Are you as excited as I am?

Lounging in these.

Filling up my Fall/Winter Pinterest board with lots of great outfits for the season.

Donating to help those suffering in Syria. Reference this list of legitimate organizations. It’s a little late to be on the right side of history in this conflict, but it isn’t too late to make a difference to individuals affected.
