Thank you so much to everyone for your well wishes on our big news! We’re beyond thrilled, and can’t wait to welcome this little one into the world. It’s reassuring to know that we’re not the first people to ever do this (I might be reaching out to you all from time to time for your wisdom!).

And now, for some weekend links…

I hope everyone is having an easy transition coming back from the holidays! I always have a hard time adjusting to “real life” after a break, so I try to find little ways to celebrate the everyday – lunch plans with friends, fresh flowers in the house, listening to music as I cook dinner. And I have to say, though it’s wonderful to unplug for awhile, I miss all of my dear blog friends when I do! I should also say, if find yourself recently engaged after the holidays and you’re new to Snippet & Ink: Congratulations! And welcome!

This is my very favorite time of year – festive lights and decorations everywhere, get togethers with family and friends, traditions old and new. Plus lots and lots of cookies! This weekend, Ryan and I are going to The Nutcracker ballet with a couple friends – perhaps it will be one of those new traditions. What are you up to this weekend? How have you been celebrating the holiday season?

I’m hosting a cookie exchange tomorrow, and I can’t wait to see what everyone brings (I’m making chocolate sablés and glazed lemon cookies). I also had a great time creating a Pinterest board to get in the cookie exchange spirit – and to save all the cookie recipes I won’t be able to make this time around. What about you – what are your favorite cookies to make for the holidays?

2-dimensional gingerbread houses.

For the cookie lovers in your life: make-your-own cookie cutter kit.

Love & Lemons’ recipe cards would be such sweet gifts or stocking stuffers.

What a beautiful way to incorporate a wedding photo into your holiday cards.

Have a yummy weekend everyone!
