the coolest xmas gift i've ever received... but to keep, or not to keep?

the amazing brian got me this awesome jellyfish tank for christmas, but after much thought and deliberation we decided to return it.  it's an awesome idea, and i am personally mesmerized by jellyfish but maybe the idea was better than the reality.  i don't want to get attached to something that's going to die in a year!  i know you think 'how could anyone get attached to a jellyfish' but you'd be surprised. i get teary when one of my houseplants dies!


christmas cookies

it's that time of year again.... time for christmas cookies!  this year i made gingerbread trees with lemon drizzle, chocolate pistachio, almond thins, red velvet whoopie pies, and iced sugar cookies.
