i think i am done making all of my presents. i just have a little bit more wrapping to do, and then i plan to play santa on weds or thurs night, dropping everything off. everything kind of got bumped up because i am going to san diego to be with my family--it's a really tough time right now, and i never get three days off in a row, so this seemed like a good chance.

i stopped by june taylor's still room today. everyone should go--it'd be a great place to pick up some lovely presents, and she is just such a nice person. the space is incredible--so beautiful and airy, and well lit. and she has all sorts of special candied treats, an incredible fruitcake, and of course her jams and marmalades.

i also made it to vik's, where everything was especially spicy today. i barely made it out of there alive!
