Seriously!!! This is it. Here's why:
1 - I have an excuse to bake/cook all week. I love looking for and finding new recipes as well as making old favorites. I love the smells and warmth that comes from the kitchen. It's a foodies dream!
2 - Thanksgiving, which is at a tie for first place as my favorite holiday. A day devoted to giving thanks, spending time with family AND eating?!?!?! Sign me up.
3- I get to set up my Christmas tree. This always happens the Saturday after Thanksgiving and I LOVE decorating for Christmas. Bring on the Amy Grant.
So, when you add up all that and throw in a serious shopping day and a 4 day weekend - how could it not be my FAVORITE week of the year?
