With 2016 officially here, we face forward to take on what’s next. It’s a time of endings and beginnings, so I wanted a broad theme that could be simple, fun, and festive, but also complex and introspective. And so, circle it is. For more information go here!

Personally, I’ve decided to expand this week’s theme to THE CIRCLES OF LIFE! At least as I see it.DSC01849

First, there is my morning brew that comes in those circular white plastic cups that go into my Kueric Coffee Maker and provides my morning wake up each day.

And to go with my morning wake-up fluids, the crunchy, almost circular  gifts from the gods known as Christmas Cookies. So when I baked cookies this Christmas (for the first time in ten years), I made chocolate chip,DSC01846.jpg snickerdoodles, DSC01844peanut butter with a dark chocolate kiss centered on top,DSC01843

and just to be different … macadamia nut with white chips.DSC01845

I also love the traditional anise flavored German Springerle cookies,Unknown.jpeg

But, my Aunt Edna gave Grandma’s hand-carved German rolling pin needed to make them images to her favorite niece (aka. my least fav cousin!)

Now, I could have purchased a dozen or so (for about $16) but in order to do that, I would have had to make a trip down to a traditional German bakery in South Saint Louis to buy them. That’s my life … and welcome to it!
