i know, it's not even halloween yet and i'm getting my panties in a wad about christmas!! but this morning as i was driving to work, drinking my chai tea latte from starbucks, i was consumed by an overwhelming feeling of giddiness about christmas!!!! i think it's because that chai tea tastes the way christmas smells. come on, i know that makes sense to someone! maybe there's cinnamon in it, or something- but i always think of christmastime smells when i drink that tea.
anyway, christmas. i love it so much! not the actual day, but more like the whole month of december. there is something about christmas that changes people. everyone seems more giving. happier. and it's just fun to be out and about because everything is decorated!! what other time of year does the entire freaking world decorate anything they can with holiday cheer? i love the feeling. i love everything about it (yes, even the cold). so yeah. that's it. christmas giddiness in october!
ps- i'll post the other recipes soon. they are delish! thank you to my good friend shawna who gave me all of the recipe's i'll be sharing with you. she's the best! :)
