1. I literally found myself googling “how to make time feel slower.” Whhhhyyyy is it going so fast.
2. Really want to make these double chocolate cut out cookies.
3. On that same note, I love this about slow holidays.
4. Pretty sure I mentioned this last year, but my holiday notes SAVE ME every year. I just have a google doc (but you could do a notebook) with notes of how things went this year, to remember next year. For instance, I note the gifts I give teachers, service, etc, when I wrap gifts, menus, cookies baked, anything decor wise I need to buy next year and all that. It’s so helpful.
5. TV Things!! Loved Yellowstone, the dinner table banter was amazing. I didn’t watch 1883 yet. I watched And Just Like That and ugh, that episode. Just no! to all of it.
6. Why 2021 was worse than last year. Ooomph. I so agree. While so much of it was good here (Jordan!), this year has definitely been harder than last.
7. We baked soooo many cookies this weekend! The kids had so much fun and I let them help and do so much on their own. Then they asked me when we could make more because “we didn’t make that many” and I instantly felt karma for saying the same to my mom.
8. Side note – I froze all cookies which I rarely ever do. And instantly regretted it the next morning when we really wanted to eat one!

#6 – did not expect to get emotionally attacked this early in the morning but wow, I felt that.
#5 – my husband is (still) working on 1883, and we genuinely loved it! It’s more Western than what I usually care for, but it’s so easy to get sucked into the story.
Hi there, was there a link for number 2? I’m curious what cookies those are!
I’m doing holiday notes now too!! I made a Captain’s Log during Thanksgiving cooking of exactly what time I started things so I can refine the plan for Christmas and next Thanksgiving. I also hadn’t realized I took some notes last year; less detailed but still…I was SO glad Past Me did that!!!
What recipe do you use for your cut out cookies in the picture above? Those look beautiful and mine….. were not haha!!
Oh, that Slow Holiday article is prime reading. My family started doing discount Christmas a few years ago where you pick one dorky little present for each person (like a box of tea) and that’s it. It’s so fun! Nobody breaks the bank or has pressure or expectations. Also, my husband has to work on Saturday, so my brother is coming over and we’re going for a walk in the park. That will be my Christmas this year and I’m dying of happiness just thinking about it. Slow Christmas rules!
