This month I…

got back to running (yes!)… received flowers from my husband ‘Just because’… took Sam to see Santa… celebrated Sam’s first Christmas made my first full Christmas dinner… had a quiet New Year’s Eve with delicious food where we were so engrossed in SNL we missed the midnight stroke… made my first ‘home improvement project – a blind… had my dear friend Stella to stay… took Sam to the zoo… Baked up a storm with 2 types of awesome cupcakes (reindeer and santa) and some semi-successful Linzer cookies.
