The magic of the holiday is really coming full circle! Not only is my FAVORITE holiday this month, but it’s also when we get to celebrate National Cookie Day, which means this mama has an extra reason to celebrate. 😉 While this Ms. Claus may be a teensy bit tired from decking the halls and making sure our holiday is full of extra cheer, not to mention as normal as possible given ALL the circumstances the Powell pack has had to navigate this year, one thing is a given: We can all agree that cookies can bring a smile to anyone’s face.
