i'm in a holi-daze, no two ways about it. i keep thinking - when will i have time to bake gluten free christmas cookies? and i've resigned to the idea that i won't have time. the days are flying by (hello, it's december 10th? not. clear. on.) and work is bananas (year end, ugh), and i'm shop shop shopping away for gifts for my family and friends, and New York is just so pretty during the holidays... it has me feeling festive and putting me in the mood to have FUN!!
