Unfortunately, I had a cold almost the whole week of Christmas. It wasn't too bad since I took a ton of Zicam to lessen the severity of it, but I still couldn't sleep well since I couldn't breathe. When I get sick, my sinuses always get hit the worst. They always end up super swollen and stuffy, so much that no form of medicine or home remedies ever help. My cold combined with all the excitement and festivities of Christmas caused me to become a little sleep deprived. This weekend I finally got to catch up on my sleep, though. I slept 10 hours both Friday and last night!
Although I was a little under the weather, I was still able to get all my Christmas cookie baking done at the beginning of the week. I made gingerbread, sugar cookies, and hot cocoa cookies. I'll be posting the hot cocoa cookie recipe soon! If you're interested in my gingerbread or sugar cookies, you can check out the recipes here and here!

After I was done with this shoot, I headed over to the nearby beach to watch the sunset. I got there just in time to see the colors get all gradient and pretty. It gets dark so soon in the winter, and I hate it! The days are so much shorter and it's dark by 5, 5:30. I wish the days could be long like they are in the summer all year round!
