  • It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Are you ready?

    Our Christmas will be very simple this year and I am so glad. The last few years have been so busy with my catering that I did not have much time to do things for others.

    This year is already different. I have been baking up a storm, but only so that I may give special gifts to my friends. I am having so much fun.
