Merry Christmas

“When we recall Christmas past, we usually find the simplest things, not the great occasions, give off the greatest glow of happiness.” ~ Bob Hope

It’s been a hectic two weeks with all the hustle and bustle of the holidays. Today was a chance to sleep in and relax before heading out for an afternoon with family. M and I made muffins and then took a drive over to our house for a tranquil walk in the woods.

A fresh batch of vegan cranberry walnut muffins for breakfast

And just for a fun…a little pop quiz from Averie’s blog:
