Every year during the holiday season, I love to crank up the Christmas music and enjoy spending some time in the kitchen baking seasonal treats for my family. There is almost nothing like it to get you in the holiday spirit. And, as most of you know by now, we moved into our first home earlier this year, so it is an especially exciting time!
