It was not a summer bbq or a housewarming party not even a birthday party… 7 months later I finally hosted my 1st social at our 1st house. I invited my sister and my closest friends to come over and make Christmas cookies! I have always wanted to do this and it was a perfect way to get into the holiday spirit and reconnect with my friends.
I honestly get pretty anxious when it comes to gatherings and I do not have a lot of practice hosting my own parties, but I think this went really well especially with the help of my sister.
I was super excited about the idea of making Christmas cookies with my friends, but the preparation somewhat overwhelmed me. What kind of cookies would I make? Which recipe should I use? Cocktails or no cocktails??? You know, the important things that people think about.
I started with a decision. I decided that I would make sugar cookie dough and also gingerbread then I chose recipes and the fun began. My sister and I had a blast shopping for the ingredients. I finally settled on hot chocolate with rainbow colored marshmallows.
My friends arrived and we had a Marvelous time!!!
I also like it because it gave me a chance to clean quickly and spruce up our home. I am getting better at cleaning quickly and efficiently.
I am so glad that I did not let my nervousness get the best of me. I have done it before where I make plans then I cancel them or opt out because I am so nervous. I never want my nervousness to get in the way of making beautifully unforgettable memories.
The best memories are made of sugar cookies and gingerbread, right?
I will feature my recipes on an upcoming blog post if you like.
Have you baked your Christmas cookies yet? What is your favorite recipe or do you have a special holiday project that you like to do each year?
Peace, Joy, and Blessings Always,
