Between my husband's and my schedule it's really hard to schedule time to hang out with friends. Well, last night we had some of our close friend's over just for a couple hours to chat over tea, cookies and some M&M's. It was so nice. And we didn't have to pay for a babysitter or spend money on food. Everyone had a great time telling stories and reconnecting. It was really nice to just have some time to sit and relax...not having to rush. I highly recommend doing this activity with some friends this holiday season. And my wonderful friend Kim brought over these adorable kitchen towels. I instantly put them up on the handle of my oven. It's another little thing that makes me smile when I see them. I also highly suggest surrounding yourself with things that make you happy.....whether that be gingerbread men kitchen towels or wonderful friends.
