    Tito’s! Very very nice. For Christmas this year, we put some Tito’s in individual jars with two slices of apple and cinnamon and let it sit for a month. Just had some today and it was delicious! Recommend if you’re looking to mix it up. :)

    Great post. We haven’t taken our tree down yet either. Skinnies and boots are just the perfect winter combo aren’t they. I’ll check out the gluten free slow cooker recipes, cheers!

    I love your post. This flower arrangement is so beautiful. I love the pink. You are very talented.
    Hope you are right with: ‘Knowing: 2014 is going to be a great year.’ Sounds good ;)
    And I totally agree with the point that everything has to come to daily routine. Mean the point: What day is it, again? I feel quite the same way. Hope it gets better soon.

    Have a nice day.
