And I can say that and lust after his rich, chocolaty baritone because my dear sweet husband bought the CD for me, started a fire in the fireplace, and we snuggled up together to listen to all of Josh’s yumminess.
Let us not overlook the fact that I am listening to Christmas music!! Seriously, last year, I didn’t listen to a single Christmas CD because I just couldn’t stomach it. Didn’t I tell you how miserable I was and how much I hated the holidays? But not this year! I am listening to Christmas music! Even on the radio! And singing along!
I am not at all stressed by the looming, inevitable, undetermined Secret Santa gifts, the class parties, the last-minute “please send ____ to school tomorrow.” No, I’m not. Because I have finished my Christmas shopping, and I have FOUR Christmas yummies in my freezer.
Speaking of yummies, I have to share this very easy, very yummy recipe that I have made and will serve/give this holiday season.
