a few times a year, i get together with a friend to spend the day talking, laughing, measuring, washing dishes, filling jars with hot sugary goodness in a steamy kitchen that smells of summer berries and Christmas spices. we drink coffee with special creamer, and taste our creations with good cheese and crackers. truly days that i look forward too and often long for.
today was the day.
48 jars of Christmas jam later, my feet are tired and my heart is full.
