Host a themed potluck

This past weekend, a group of women honored me by participating in a Christmas Cookie potluck. The idea involves bringing dough and spending an afternoon shaping and baking it together. At the end of the event, the women get to take a variety of cookies home with them, as well as an infusion of Holiday Spirit.

Being single during the holidays can often foster a sense of being on the outskirts of “real” families. Occassions like these, however, provide confirmation that we are all connected…

The event was far from perfectly prepared

(I forgot to double bake my biscotti before every one left, and I couldn’t find my teapot) but in the end, it was perfectly what I needed.
