Merry Christmas!

My house turns into a giant factory during this time of the year! We made several kinds of cookies, I can't even name them all. I helped out with the Mexican wedding cake cookies-- I haven't even tried them yet!

...what beautiful wrapping!! I'll post some things I opened this morning soon :)

I loved Christmas so much this year, probably because I found much joy in seeing my family open the presents I got them <3

Home for the Holidays!

After being home for a week, I've finally been able to get back on track a little and find time to get a new post up! I've officially finished off my first semester of sophomore year at Columbia College, and am so happy to be relaxing at home here in Boston with friends and family. I finished my Christmas shopping in a matter of days and wrapped them all yesterday :) I forgot what I asked for this Christmas, but maybe I'll share some things on here.

My lovely chica Erica Caso helped me execute a mini photo shoot in my garage the other day, and here are the finished photos! I can't wait to take more photos over the long vacation. With no homework or job responsibilities on my shoulders and lots of empty days to fill with plans, I'm sure I'll be posting more often :)
