Hi friends! I hope you are all enjoying the holiday season. My two big kids are home from college this week and I’m so very excited about it! I miss them both so much and am counting down the sleeps till they are here.

Last spring during an end of season sale we bought ourselves some cross country skis in hopes of helping me embrace winter a wee bit more. We got out today for the first time and it was so much fun. I really enjoyed myself even if it was super tiring. I can’t wait to go again.

But then of course I needed a nap after all that hard work. I had a little company on the couch keeping me warm. My sweet sweet Bella girl.

Recipe Highlight:

At this time of the year you may have a few potlucks to attend. I just made this Slow Cooker Mac & Cheese recipe again today for my son who was going to a youth potluck. He absolutely loves it and since it’s a slow cooker recipe it’s fantastic for potlucks. I know I’ve shared it before but thought it would be worth mentioning again if it helps someone out. It’s quick & easy to throw together, especially if you get your kids to grate the cheese :). You can also easily double it if you need to.
