responsibilities of christmas


I decided this was going to be the first year I became an adult, meaning, I gave out neighbor gifts for Christmas. Hurray. I've lived in my neighborhood for a couple of years now, it's probably time to be sociable. I saw this idea and thought, hey, easy and cute! So I found this recipe for cinnamon roasted almonds which seemed pretty simple. Well! It's a good thing I decided to be an adult and try this whole neighbor gift while I still have free time in my life because holy cow, making these took a million years. Or at least eight hours. Never again! The almonds were delicious, though, if I do say so myself. And I do like my neighbors, so I guess the spirit of giving is all that's important. They better like me too, though, because if not, I might start giving out coal.

Love the presentation! I know I am not strictly a neighbor but feel free to send one down here.
