I strolled leisurely up and down 5th Avenue, taking in the unbelievable storefront windows. Such exquisite attention to detail. I stood for quite some time watching the ice skaters in Rockefeller Center, telling myself that I would be back to skate with my husband one day.
New York in December really is as magical as everyone says. I truly hope to celebrate the season there with my family someday soon.
Changing topics just a bit - this year I have been invited to two cookie swaps. I'm struggling with recipes because my last two attempts at desserts have not been successful. I'm not much of a baker. I think it's because the measurements have to be exact and the timing must be perfect. I get distracted easily. But I must bring something, so during my long hours in the airport, I found a few cookie recipes that might do the trick.
Todd would love these Chocolate-Espresso Snowcaps.
These Honeyed Almond-Cherry Shortbread Cookies look delicious.
Recently I've had a slight obsession with Earl Grey tea. These Earl Grey Tea Cookies might be perfect as I'm sure they will be a nice compliment to the warm drinks that will be served.
I'm so thankful to be home, pondering over cookie recipes and not stressing about flight connections and early call times.
I want to be very intentional with my time these next few weeks. This year has been challenging to say the least, and I want to go out strong. I don't want to spread myself so thin that I'm not able to soak in the precious time I have with family and friends.
I want to live in the moment and be, not do.
Now back to those cookies...
