Is anyone else itching for spring? I remember last year just waiting and waiting and waiting for spring to arrive. And when it did, I was not disappointed. Boston in spring is absolutely gorgeous. The blooming trees, the sprouting bulbs, the warmth in the air... it was just what I needed after a winter like we had last year. And this year? I have no room to complain. It has been straight-up balmy compared to last winter. Like today will be about 52 degrees (but cloudy). I don't care, though. I am still ready for winter to be over.
Today I am going to visit a friend who recently had a baby. I am going to talk her ear off, asking all the questions that are swirling through my brain, which will hopefully alleviate some of my nervousness about all-things baby (and, let's be honest, all-things labor).
But first, I'll make these cookies. Homemade baked goods make people want to talk about super personal things, right? Right.
