Happy Monday! T-minus six days until Christmas! I’m nearly set. My cards are going out late and I have one last package to send but in my assessment I consider it a successful holiday season. It wasn’t nearly as stressful as Christmases past, I got to spend jolly good times with friends, and I added a precious few new ornaments to the collection. How is yours going?
One of my favorite things about doing these Monday quotables is the opportunity to learn about fascinating people. Peg Bracken has me nearly giddy with excitement. From what little I’ve read so far, she seems to be a mix of Nora Ephron, Amy Sedaris, and Julia Child. Her most famous book, I Hate to Cook Book, gave 1960s housewives permission to not be perfect and threw in a good measure of humor to boot. I can’t wait to dig in and learn more about her life and work!
Here’s wishing you a most wonderful holiday week filled with spare time and an abundance of love!
