Even though I’ve been missing over the past week, I’ve had you all on my mind. I’ve been hanging out with my guys, entertaining at our home, shopping, cooking and taking time out to reflect on this special time of year.  I’m sending you best wishes for a Christmas filled with love, people who are special in your life and much happiness. My family has been able to share in many great moments over the past few days and I am grateful, thankful and humbled by each one. I’ll be back next week with some great recipes and a few stories so, from this southern soul, who is counting her blessings…Merry Christmas, friends!hunter-star-ornament
