irish candy cane.

family secret no longer: once all the food is prepared on thanksgiving morning, before all the guests arrive, we take a shot of baileys. to say “we succeeded in not burning down the house”. or the fact that we can finally sit down. either or. for those wondering, why a shot of baileys? three reasons. 1] we like to have fun. 2] but we have taste buds. 3] and don’t want to pass out under the table.

this cocktail is in honor of my family’s thanksgiving morning baileys shot.

first snowfall.

I must interrupt our regularly scheduled programming.

we had our first snowfall.

usually I’m the opposite of excited, but I got to enjoy it from the safety + warmth of the indoors. so it was rather beautiful. and I decided to create a celebration around it.

[J] is 110% against anything christmas-related before thanksgiving, but I convinced him to put up our outdoor icicle lights on sunday evening. saying it’d be miserable to put them up when there is snow on the ground.¬†what the heck happens the very next day? snow!
