The Week In Eight Photos

‘Tis the season to be jolly

and while for some that means they would rather be baking,

I prefer avoiding the kitchen and enjoying magical holiday moments with my niece

at our favorite bakery.

Plenty of laughter and Christmas songs on the radio as we speculate about what delicious holiday surprises we could talk ourselves into buying.

Last Christmas we were late to the hot cocoa bomb craze, but this year we were feeling rather trendy when we were actually prepared for National Cocoa Day earlier in the week.

The adorable individually wrapped little sugar cookies were a delight, the hot cocoa was the best I’ve ever enjoyed in my life and

another trip to the bakery may be required for more stocking stuffers.
