It's just a handful of days before Christmas, but my biggest and best present came a little early. All the Sweet Things cookbook went to print today. Hooray! Guys, I'm so, so happy. And proud. And feeling all the feels. This has been quite the journey, from the time I was approached by TouchWood almost 2 years ago, to finishing my proposal in June of 2015, to the offer of a contract in July, then the completion of the manuscript this past April. With the expected publication date of late April 2017, that's almost two years of gestation for my book baby!

This is a sponsored post. I was compensated financially by the National Watermelon Promotion Board. As always, I wouldn't tell you about a product unless I really really love it. And I love watermelon.
So, we're in the thick of it, aren't we? Hustling to and fro, going to holiday parties and Christmas concerts, and doing our best to make the season bright. If you're like me, and busy busy busy, you're behind on your baking and unsure if those Christmas cards will be sent out before the Big Day. Don't fret. Do the best you can. And if in doubt, hum along to Good King Wenceslas. It works! I swear! And, of course, the Plan B is always a shot of something boozy into a hot beverage. Baileys in hot chocolate is a fave around here!
