I know what will make the dark, short days just a little bit brighter. COOKIE DECORATING + eating said cookies. Am I right or am I right? I had so much fun (read: slight stress) decorating these cookies for photos, but honestly they were SO GOOD, so the little bit of decorating stress was worth it.
Also, I want to note that cookie decorating should never be stressful ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ just fun!
