If you are thinking of baking holiday treats for visitors, neighbors, co-workers, friends….Think Joy the Baker! She was in Boston today at Eat Boutique’s holiday market and I had the pleasure of meeting her and having her sign my copy of her cookbook. Pick one up – I highly recommend it! Thanks Joy!

Thanksgiving was a bit early this year, and I felt like we were given a little “bonus” week to prepare for holiday festivities. I think this year I will actually have some time to really enjoy the moment because I got so much done over the last 2 weeks. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Enjoy!
This message was on the floor of Children’s Hospital Waltham. I love it.

The holiday stroll along Charles Street in Boston’s historic Beacon Hill tonight was reminiscent of a simpler time. The street was closed to cars, leaving our legs and a few horse-drawn carriages to do the transporting. I took this photo because everything about the scene screamed “1800s” to me. However, when I uploaded the photo to my computer I realized that the reflectors on the carriages just didn’t fit in. Oh well. I tried. Nevertheless, it was a beautiful night to be a Bostonian.
