Friday Favorites from The Lettered Cottage, Chinoiserie Chic, Jennifer Rizzo, Six Sisters Stuf and More!

Good morning! Happy Friday! I don't know about you but the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas makes me feel a little lazy. I do not want to work: I simply want to bake, wrap presents, and enjoy time with friends and family. It is the most wonderful time of the year after all and I do not want to miss a minute!

I already have my trees up, and my house decorated, all present purchased, wrapped and mailed, except the ones I will deliver in person. The baking has begun and I will be doing that until the 21st, as I have a lot of people to deliver cookies, cakes and candies too and I love it all.

What about you? What is your favorite part of the holidays, aside from the obvious of family and friends. Your tree? Parties? Decor" Baking? A Christmas concert or event?

I hope that you have a fabulous weekend! Don't forget to put out your stocking tonight if you celebrate The Feast of St. Nicholas. I know that I will be awaiting my stocking on Saturday morning!
