READING: A collection of cozy winter stories. And looking forward to reading this in 2017. What's the best book you read in 2016? I can't choose between this novel and this graphic memoir. Both were remarkable in different ways.

WATCHING: Madame Secretary, which is a great way to get my D.C. fix. Also, have you watched The Crown yet? SO good. Finally, I need to carve out some time to watch one of my favorite holiday movies in the next couple weeks.

EATING: Tomato soup. Simple, homemade tomato soup. I make it every week. It simmers on the stove for over two hours and infuses the air with the most delectable aroma. The trick? Good tomatoes.

ENJOYING: The fact that we had family pictures taken back in October, meaning I could get Christmas cards in the mail immediately after Thanksgiving. This may be our new tradition.

FEELING: Grateful for all the people who have helped us over the past couple months, and really for the entire year.

LISTENING TO: The best radio of 2016, specifically the winners from The Third Coast Competition.

MAKING: Christmas cookies, including these ginger infused delights.

DREAMING OF: A New Year's getaway. Not sure if it will happen this year, but maybe we'll be able to escape soon for an overnight kid-free adventure.

LAUGHING AT: My daughter's antics. She recently pulled a packet of tuna out of the pantry and started skating around our wood floors with it. Plus her rendition of Frosty the Snowman always makes me laugh.

EXCITED FOR: The first snow of the season and more indoor fires.
