Currently – December 2020

Hello! Welcome to my favorite linkup of the month! Anne from In Residence assigns five prompts each month and invites us to respond to them.

I want to bake ALL THE THINGS! My doctor thinks that’s not a great plan, so I’m strategically assessing the recipes and choosing just a few! Maybe these White…
