one of my bestest friends came out to visit me the weekend before Christmas. Marcy and I didn’t have a lot of time together because the weekends are so short anymore, but we fit in a lot of catching up! together, we baked biscottis that turned out wonderfully and some other treats to take into my office for Christmas. we also hit the town Saturday night and dined at The Green Well Gastro Pub, sharing a half bottle of Charlie, the Chardonnay created especially for this establishment by my favorite winery, Black Star Farms. really awesome weekend to de-stress right before the holiday!
