They are close friends of ours and have appeared many times on this blog and we couldn’t be happier for them.  And I’m gonna be a bridesmaid!!}031033{with all the holiday parties going on this time of year, we opted for a simple dinner of champagne (this one here), selection of cheeses from Cheesetique, sausage from the butcher, and some other light sides. All really good! My favorite was the honey goat cheese – out of this world.}

What gets you in the holiday mood?
Favorite holiday traditions? Used to be eggnog, but I’ve lost the taste for it as I’ve gotten older! I love holiday teas though!
