Several years ago, I started a cookie exchange with some of my work friends. Even though I no longer live there, nothing short of my daughter having a baby in TX (which strangely enough has caused me to miss two!) will stop me from making the nearly three hour trek over the river and through the woods................just kidding.............the trek up I-5 to attend the party. It's good to see everyone and catch up on the past year. And of course there are the cookies. And before the cookies we have potluck.
And did I mention the cookies?
