A few of my favorite things….


…holiday baking with my girls

…Christmas work parties and celebrations with family

…decorating our Christmas tree together while watching White Christmas

…all of us in the kitchen together preparing our Christmas lunch

…reading the Christmas story before opening gifts

…because Jesus is the Reason for the Season…

For Unto Us A Savior Is Born!

  1. Congrats on your first year! Looks like you’ve had a great year, and a wonderful holiday. I started my blog about a year and a half ago and sometimes I don’t post as much as I’d like but it’s fun because it gets me to write about my stories, share pics and a great way for family and friends to read about your adventures! I really enjoy it and I’ve decided to now start adding my recipes and food-related things because I’m a huge baking fanatic and spend most of my time in the kitchen. I could bake (or talk about food) 24-7, when I’m not travelling that is. I find as I’ve gotten older, I’m travelling a bit less than I was in my 20s and 30s–but I still do the occasional road trip (even a short one) whenever I can sneak away. I was originally thinking of starting a food blog too, but I don’t want two blogs and I follow quite a few blogs (like yours) who combine things like food and travel, so I figured it’s the way to go. I’m actually working on my first recipe post…hurray!
    I love all your Christmas treats, those pretzel sticks are fabulous! I’ve also never been to Magnolia bakery, but I REALLY want to get there.


    • I will be looking for your first recipe post! I think it is great for you to combine both food and travel. I love taking pics of food at wonderful places I have visited or even after tasting a great meal here in Austin! But my favorite thing to do is bake and give to friends and family. I do love making chocolate covered pretzels, which I make for any occasion and all my friends…and I do love cupcakes. Magnolia Bakery is very good I might add! But my actual favorite cupcake place in NY is Sweet Revenge. I have not found a cupcake I like better yet! But I will keep trying. Thanks for commenting and I look forward to many more posts on your blog!!!

      • Thanks Kristy! Sorry it’s taken me so long to reply to your comment, it’s been insanely busy on my end…even for January (surprisingly!). Things are slowing a bit now, thankfully so I’m finally starting to catch up on my comments and reading the blogs that I enjoy following like yours. And I’m posting a bit more finally, too. Thanks for your sweet words, I’ve done a couple of food posts and love it. I love baking and sharing with friends and family too, plus I use them as my guinea pigs which they seem to enjoy (haha). I might be going to NY city in the summer or fall, so if I go I’m going to check out Magnolia and Sweet Revenge. I suspect it won’t be too difficult for me to cupcakery-hop at all (for research purposes only!) haha. Thanks so much for the suggestion. Love your blog, keep up the great work!
