Paleo Ginger Cookies

Paleo Ginger Cookies, Lake Superior Kitchen, Grain Free, Christmas cookies

Christmas Eve is tomorrow and I don’t have much to say.  The last few days have been filled with holiday festivities, friends, and family.  We went to a Christmas party this week and played music at a holiday show.  We spent quality time with long-distance family, embracing the outdoors as well as the coziness of our home.  I feel very thankful.  Our house is full of Christmas lights and the smell of baking bread.  (I’m making apple bread for the neighbors this year.)  I’m reflecting on the peace and hope of the birth of Jesus.  I pray that whatever feelings Christmas might bring up in you, that love overcomes it all.
