For time with my family, particularly the littles who are growing so fast. For being able to be helpful in a mini-crisis. For travel, despite its frustrations. For holiday meals and desserts. For yoga upon my return after an absence that felt lengthy. For knitting and reading and lovely thoughtful gifts. For a new cookbook to add to my collection and for using one that’s been on the shelf for a bit, to make something delicious to share. For time off. For being able to watch the snow at home and not having to shovel it.
