Merry Christmas!

For the first time in years, we woke up to a white Christmas!

Santa came…

And there are cinnamon rolls in the oven.

This may be the best Christmas of my life and it has nothing to do with the gifts. I feel like I got the magic back. Thank you all so much for bringing joy into my life everyday this past year and for reading How Sweet It Is.

Merry Christmas!

    So funny, I woke up to a white Christmas, too, and also have cinnamon rolls on tap for this morning. Sadly, I don’t have any cookie dough dip or spinach dip with bacon in it, though. Have a very merry Christmas! I’m a newer reader, but love the blog!

    Merry Christmas to you Jessica! What a beautiful sight to see when you woke up! We enjoyed our kicked up spinach dip (huuuuge hit with my mom) and the peanut butter cookie dough dip was my dad’s favorite! You gave my sister and I so many great ideas, thanks! Hope you have a very special day! God bless!

    I’ve only recently begun following you – from so many other blogs mentioning you! – so may I ask what happened for the “magic” to have been gone from your life? Because you seem fabulous and have quite an “empire” here ! :)

    Christmas is never about gifts! Never!

    Merry Christmas! I’m a new reader, and was introduced to your fabulous blog by a friend who is obsessed with snickerdoodles! I’m working in Moscow for the year, and baking products are VERY hard to come by (no baking powder! or brown sugar!) but I knew when I saw your chocolate chip cookie dough dip I HAD to sacrifice the bag of chocolate chips my mum mailed me from back home. It turned out delicious and was a great dessert for my Russian friends here after a heavy Christmas feast! Thank you!!
