Sweet Things

6 Dec

While the holidays are a fashionista’s haven of party outfits to plan and lots of pretty presents to give, this time of year also brings about yummy sweets a plenty. In between braving treks to the mall and endlessly searching for that perfect gift we somehow find time to make things. I’m not talking a batch or two of sugar cookies but rather hundreds and hundreds of sugary decorated morsels.

Funny little cookie cutters…perfect stocking stuffer!

A whirlwind of flour and frosting takes over the kitchen for the better part of 24 hours as we bake our way into sweet happiness. Here are some of my favorite cookie recipes I want to share with you…

Pastelitos de Boda

Oatmeal Raspberry-Jam Bars

Chocolate Hazelnut Sandwiches

Gingerbread men (and women)

Sugar Cookies

Happy baking!

Dream Big

3 Dec

When I was in college one of my favorite songs was Dream Big by Ryan Shupe and the Rubberband Band. Not only for the melody but because the lyrics were so truly inspirational, the chorus being “When you dream, dream big.” How profound.

I always find Friday’s to be especially inspirational as I build big plans in my head of what I can accomplish in the coming weekend. It seems that the bigger you dream, the more likely it is that your dreams just might come true. Let’s be honest, dreaming is fun but reality is so much better.

Here are some inspirational “Dream Big” things from around the web today…enjoy!

Shape What’s To Come project by Levi’s…where women from all over the world come together to share, inspire, and grow.

Have a happy weekend!
