Do you know what I love most about this whole cookie WORLD we've built? I mean...besides EVERYTHING?! Actually...everything kind of sums it up. But if I HAD to say something besides everything, like if for some inexplicable reason, the future of our world as we know it depended upon me picking something else besides everything... I could do that for you. I would sacrifice like that because the future of our world is something that I'm actually quite fond of and would really love to see it stick around.

Did you know that I used to live in Georgia? It's true. My husband and I moved there for a few months right after we got married. I could really go for some of that whole "still warm in the winter" thing that they've got going on over there right now. And of all the crazy memories I have of that state, there are three that are permanently etched into my brain whenever I think about Georgia.

Things have slowed down a little bit for me after the Christmas rush. As it turns out, my kitchen counters still exist under all that royal icing. I've gone to bed before midnight... ON PURPOSE... multiple times! For better or worse, I finally discovered where that smell was coming from. I even managed to do enough laundry that I can now wear matching socks...and not just in public. Things are REALLY starting to look up for me.

Tell me if you've heard this story before. A cookie decorator eats Thanksgiving dinner with her family...falls asleep...dreams about making cookies nonstop and never sleeping for an entire month. Then wakes up and realizes it WASN'T a dream (except the part about riding the sparkly unicorn...that part was definitely a dream) and she has exactly 4 days left until Christmas.

I'm not super good at doing things "the right way" or even "the way any sane person would do them." I eat candy while running. I do my Christmas shopping the week after Halloween. I use tipless piping bags...with tips. I shower at 2 in the afternoon...sometimes. I am completely at ease talking to a room full of hundreds of adults...and 100% terrified to talk to just a handful of teenage girls. I rarely wear anything even remotely fashionable, but when I do... you can be sure that I am also wearing an over sized nondescript gray sweatshirt on top of it. And apparently, I open bananas from "the wrong end." Who even knew that there was a RIGHT and a WRONG end to open a banana?! Not this girl!
