What does this time of year bring for you? Hours of shopping and wrapping or baking? More time spent with family and friends? Cozy nights watching Christmas movies? More charity work? For me it’s all of these things. A thread that ties them altogether is ‘homemade’. We deck our halls with greens from our property, we fill our bellies with homemade cookies and we gift pieces we’ve made with our hands. It’s a wonderful tradition that I intend on carrying on for years to come.
