a new Advent calendar

I was a little late getting this Advent calendar completed, but better late than never! I really like the design, and each little box contains some dark chocolate truffle kisses :)
If you would like to make one for next year, or even for the next couple weeks, you can find the download link here, thanks to Julieree!

Just out of the oven this morning, another loaf of my now favorite bread...
...which we'll have tonight with our pasta and marinara sauce.

I'm headed out to do some grocery shopping. After a cloudy start to the month, the sun has popped out today and is shining bright ~ hope it's shining where you are!
