Happy Holidays! / December 23, 2016

A few holiday links to share today, for those who are looking for a little baking inspiration, a book to curl up with, or some beautiful snowy photos – a little bit of everything this time!

It wouldn’t be the holidays without cookies & these three variations of crinkle cookies all look equally delicious.

We’ve made these cranberry and brie puff pastry swirls for quite a few celebrations now, and they always go fast!

Another favourite tradition of ours is a platter of Strawberry Santas – they are always great to make with my nieces and nephew each year, super simple and very cute!

I’ve been following this family’s adventures in New York City for a few years now, and these snowy photos they recently posted are some of my very favourite photos they’ve ever taken. That is pure happiness right there. They are such a positive, vibrant family who is a constant reminder to have fun and enjoy the little things in life!

I was very kindly given this book recently and I am looking forward to sitting down with a cup of tea and reading the rest – it has already been a great source of inspiration.

Last but certainly not least, a beautiful commercial that makes me tear up every time. I’m incredibly grateful for my family and for good health this holiday season, and this video is such a powerful reminder of how lucky I am to be able to say that.

Thanks again for visiting the site, and wishing you a very happy and joyous holiday! xoxo
