I like you.
Have I failed to mention that lately?
You and your nice sayings and dinner ideas make my day.
Seriously. I’m super pleased that you’re here.
I made you cookies. These cookies are red and festive. I happen to think that they are all sorts of fantastic when paired with hot chocolate and eaten curled up on the couch with a good book.
(Clearly, cookies are best with chocolate and books. It means the world is quiet and tasty and leaving you the heck alone. Score.)
I think you need more time for you in your days. And these cookies in your house definitely demand it. Add them to your baking list already. (It’s okay if they bump something off. I won’t tell anyone.) Then, relax.
