Evan spent last week in sunny San Diego at a conference for work. Which made the frigid weather here seem even colder. And so too keep myself warm, I checked things off my giant list. I made gifts, decorated for Christmas (Evan was super surprised to come home to a twinkling Christmas tree), got a dramatic hair cut (hello short hair!!), finished up the Christmas card, and ate cupcakes (okay, I shared some too). There was some serious Christmas cheer going on.
I also whipped up a few batches of lemon-lavender hand scrub (made here) for Christmas gifts and thought I'd remind you what a fantastic gift they are to make. I searched all over town for classy little spoons to attach to the jars, which turned out to be impossible. So instead of spoons, I came home with tiny cocktail forks to to tie around the jars. Which might be confusing (don't eat it!), but I think it's kind of funny.
