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 live in the city where UNT is located. I wonder if I can find them at the bookstore… Maybe we should make up our own!
