Links for Your Tuesday

Did everyone have a restful holiday weekend? Because of the holiday, I moved the next interview in the “Joy” series to next week. Look for it on Monday!

We are a little behind around here. According to the world of Instagram and Facebook, we are the only family who has NOT yet set up our tree. Whoops. Still catching my breath from our trek up to Dallas and back, but I’m looking forward to making some cocoa, turning on Christmas music, and decorating our little apartment to celebrate Christmas (Baby’s first!) later this week.

I am, however, almost done with our Christmas cards. This is the first year we’ve sent any out (I just couldn’t muster the nerve to send out a card last year…”Hi, here we are in your mailbox. The two of us. Again. Even though we were here on a save-the-date and again on an invitation just a few months ago.” It seemed repetitive.)  I am so excited about this year’s cards though and can’t wait to share them!

Here’s a few links for your week just because. Happy Tuesday!

    1. Goodness, how did I miss all of these? Breaking news – didn’t make ANY of those cookies, although the Mexican Hot Chocolate cookies I did attempt were marvelously simple and quick AND delicious.
