New Year, New Blog

I can't believe it's already been one week since I moved into my apartment in Manhattan! One of my first nights here was New Year's Eve, and I spend it with a friend from high school in East Village. It was so much fun, and not at all what I had expected. Before I moved here, I was pretty intimidated by the size and amount of people, but really, everyone just does their own thing. I have never felt unsafe, and I can't wait to explore more of the city later on.

Secret Santa 2017

I was so excited to participate in Blogger Secret Santa this year as it was my first time. Thank you to Abigail and Cathleen for organizing everything, and my Secret Santa was Abigail! I always love finding new blogs to read, and there were so many other participants who create great content. I had Jasmin, and you can go on over to her blog to see what I got her! It was so much fun to find some gifts that I thought she'd like, as I'd see something small once in awhile along the way. We used the website Elfster, which made things very easy for shipping, buying, and getting to know who you had for Secret Santa. Be sure to see what everyone else got by clicking here!

Holiday Cookie Recipe Roundup

I've been on quite a baking kick recently, making way too many cookies, and also eating too many as well. Both of my parents have had work parties this week, and it was a great excuse to make some of my tried and true recipes along with some new ones! Here is a complete rundown of my favorite cookie recipes that I only exclusively make during this time of year. These are all very straightforward and easy to make, which is great if you're making double batches and a variety of cookies!
