create (a life): middle of the week

By freshlyplanted - 9:55 PM




This week I am...

...realizing I have far to go as a caramel-maker.

...relenting, for now, and taking comfort in baking what I know- cookies & gingerbread.

...enjoying the nibbling that accompanies a busy kitchen.

...panicking a little at the quick approach of gift exchanges.

...tweaking my to-do list, and deciding what can wait until after the New Year- or not at all. 

...deciding that a happy Mama is worth waiting to sew the kiddos their new lovies until January.

...trying to be content with what I have to give to everyone else vs. adding "one more thing."

Wishing you luck in all of your last little things!

  1. We're both doing the gingerbread thing! Must be something in the air ;)

    I've never made caramel before but it's something I LOVE!

  2. I've always wanted to make a gingerbread house! And I love caramels too- almost too much to make them. As much as I sampled throughout the process, it's amazing there were any left to share! (wink) ~Cassidy


Would love to hear from you!
