In addition to my tree, the other holiday cheer in my life revolves around my upcoming holiday party. I have an elaborate menu planned out and I promise there will be pictures and recipes to come.
But first things first: the invitation! I have been wanting to buy real paper invitations for a long time now and I finally decided this was a great time to splurge. Let me tell you, the enjoyment I got from them was worth every penny. From the "oooh fancy" remarks when we asked for people's addresses to send snail mail invites, to merrily addressing them in my new gold paint pen, to the excited reaction when people got them in the mail, I never knew I could find so much joy in paper! (Okay I suspected, but now I know.)
