5 Things Laura Loves

5 Things Laura Loves

 {Gingerbread Girl}

This week has been incredibly busy for me both professionally and personally.  It seemed like every minute was packed with work, blog, baking, gift shopping, and seeing family and friends before I leave for Europe on Saturday.  I wouldn’t have it any other way.  I love this time of year.  I started a book club this year, one of the many things I’ve always wanted to do and our 2nd meeting was at Benihana.  I had never been and wanted to check it out.  It was a fun and lively dinner to say the least where the chef puts on a show while he cooks the food.  Last night, I celebrated Christmas early with my family.  It was a night of dinner, taking pictures in front of the tree and exchanging gifts.  I’m lucky enough to celebrate Christmas twice.  I leave for Europe on Saturday to meet up with my boyfriend and his family and I’m so excited.  It really feels like Christmas over there.  Have a great weekend before Christmas!  These are the things I was lovin’ this week.  XO
