Hey there December, you’ve spring upon us rather quick! Can you believe 2015 is less than 30 days away!? I need to look back and do some major reflecting on this past year. So much has happened and changed in my life and to tell you the truth, I’m a little scared for 2016. I know I need this year to be over, but I’m not sure I’m ready yet. Hard to explain, hence, I need to reflect.
Anyway, it’s been a very productive week over here and I feel rather good about it all! Maybe it is this end-of-year winding down that’s pushing me to wrap things up and even just get weekly tasks done right away. (Okay, maybe I just jinxed myself. I took a break from writing this intro to make dinner. I tried to open a new huge heavy jar of pickles…and it fell on my little middle toe!) (Morning update: I don’t think it’s broken. Just kind of hurts and is red around the nail bed, haha!)
Time to let you guys browse the Finisher now 😛 This was a productive week, but I have a hectic weekend/week ahead, so I’m pulling all the good vibes to stay with me! Have a wonderful weekend and stay cozy warm! xoxo
Monday: Soft & Chewy Ginger Cookies
Tuesday: Gluten-Free Gifts For Kids

+ One more week of classes and then just some final tests! Wooo!
So tell me:
+ Have you started reflecting on 2015 yet?
+ Have you ever broken your toe…by doing something stupid? My brother broke his toe tripping up the steps (on his birthday!) once! What a gift 😛
