I’m warning you that there’s a fair chance I’m going to get all soppy on you in this post. I mean it IS Christmas and you guys ARE amazing! First of all, Merry Christmas!!! I hope you and your family have the most wonderful time together… relaxing… eating yummy food… drinking champas! All the good things, right.
I have to say that I am so ridiculously excited for Christmas this year. Dave and I have gone a bit crazy decorating the house with lights. Will’s on a mission to remove every Christmas decoration from the tree. every. single. day! And I’ve had so much fun baking yummy Christmassy things (like this ice-cream cake with Malteser reindeers!!).
But on a serious note, to have my little Will celebrating his first Christmas is such an amazing thing (special thanks to my Mum who sewed his Christmas present sack for him… because I can’t for the life of me sew!). This year has just been the best year of my life. Will has honestly brought so much happiness to all of us – especially with his super sweet/cheeky personality! I know I’m biased, but check out his ridiculous cuteness…
I’ve also loved being able to keep plodding away at Bake Play Smile and ThermoBliss this year. While being a mum is by far the best job ever, I’ve absolutely loved still having something special for myself. Mind you, fitting baking, taking photos and typing up recipes during naps hasn’t always been a walk in the park… but we’ve got there.
I’m so incredibly grateful for your support throughout the year. I love getting emails off you, reading your comments on social media, checking out the pictures of your baking – it really does make this job so much fun. So thank you for being the most kick-ass readers out there. Thank you for putting up with my overuse of exclamation marks (hehehe!!) and my blabbering on. You guys are fabulous and if I could bake you all a huge chocolate cake with sprinkles, I would. Sending you all lots and lots of love!
