Why does it feel like I blinked and the year is basically over??? I’m not ready. I’m barely dusting off my Thanksgiving mashed potato recipe (it’s the best one ever), much less thinking about Christmas shopping. Did I mention that I am sooooo excited for the Thankgiving mashed pototoes?!?! I can just taste them now! But I digress. I’m sure you’re not here to hear me wax poetics about the joys of mashed pototoes.
I have to say, the Hella Handmade Creations makers brought it this month and I know there is going to be something to fit everyone’s taste. Who else found it impossible to pick a favorite this month???
