Mom made me a cookbook with all of our family recipes. The cover is a picture of me and my brothers making christmas cookies.
Each page has a recipe from one family member with a picture of them.
As I started looking through it mom said, "this book also includes recipes from 5 family memebers who are no longer with us" At that moment I started crying. Now folks let me tell you, I have never cried when opening a gift - even my engagement ring! So you know it was impactful. Below are recipes from my grandmother and my counsin Leah.
I will treasure this gift forever. Thank you Mom!

Can you tell these are all on my current to do list.
To make it even worse - it was one of those nightmares when I would wake up and calm myself down but then when I fell asleep I was right back where I left off. I am pretty sure that happened three times.
I woke up this morning drenched in sweat. Needless to say, I got no sleep last night!
Can you believe it is less than 2 months! Yikes!!
