What a crazy year... I've neglected to update recently because the holidays have been so busy. It seemed like all my free time was packed with, tons of art food parties and cooking. We got a real Christmas tree this year. It smells so much better than last year's cardboard tree. Some really cute things: Some Damn Fine Tea! The packaging is stellar. It comes with two limited editions and lots of old-timey boxing mustachios... reminds me a little of the new Sherlock Holmes movie. Check out this comic! I have not read through it all yet, but the little pictures of Pete the woodsman and his animal friends are charming. For the holidays I also made a German Christmas log cake, complete with little meringue mushrooms. I usually do a lot more baking over the holidays, but I still managed this and a little gingerbread house. The best Christmas surprise of all: After a Christmas Eve dinner of home made meet pies, egg nog and wine, my boyfriend proposed! eeeeekkk!!!! It is bound to be a long engagement, but we are both hoping for a fall wedding without lace or pastels. Happy New Year Everyone!
