Christmas Hope

After some thinking, I realized why Christmas has such a hold me—it’s the hope that comes with the holiday. Christmas drips with hope, and I know of few things that are more powerful than hope.

The Baked Good that Says It All: Our Friend, the Cupcake

Cupcakes are funny—they can express both commiseration and joy. I’m not sure if other baked goods have that unique attribute.
