Yikes, can you believe Christmas is a week away?! I did most of my holiday shopping online this year and it saved my life, especially now that I don’t have to pack a bunch of gifts to haul to my family in Florida. Warren and I decided not to exchange gifts this year since we traveled to all sorts of fun places
I think I’ll still try to bust out our photo yearbook (which we’ve made every year since we started dating) but it might not be done until next year. Sigh. Isn’t that how the holiday season always goes? 
While I didn’t manage to bake treats to mail to our family this year, I’m glad I got to share my Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti in the Great Facebook Cookie Swap. Do you have a go-to holiday treat? 
I can’t wait to see all the fun stuff you have to share with us (oh, and we will be taking the next three weeks off from The Makers party to spend time with our families). See you on January 13th–2015!

Ann from My Nearest and Dearest recently updated her front porch and nearly everything you see was created, transformed or thrifted! I absolutely LOVE how she incorporated her father-in-law’s red lantern and the wreath on her front door is wintery perfection! Plus you will want to check out her new Etsy shop where she sells her creations.
