Merry Days

In a few days, we’ll take in the last of 2016 and enter 2017 with a fresh, inspired outlook complete with ambitious resolutions and goals. But until then, we can get away with eating way too many desserts (like these macarons), shopping (mostly for warm blankets and delicious-smelling candles), and relaxing during this holiday season. Happy holidays!

Pineapple

Cookies & Cream
