Holiday Gift Guide

Christmas shopping is hard.  I do my best to support local small businesses, but I don’t know what I would do without the internet.  Fight traffic or buy it online for the same price or better?  No-brainer.

And pssst, its WAY easier than hosting a brunch. 😉  But no one has to know that.  Your mom, grandma, and whomever will just think you are sweet and clever.  So, let’s stick with sweet and clever. You can go as simple or all-out as you want with a tea.  Just remember, its afternoon tea, not a meal.  It doesn’t need to be a food heavy production.  So simple, classic, buttery shortbread cookies…
