How Planning a Wedding is Like Baking Holiday Cookies

I’m not going to lie. I somehow wasn’t blessed with the family talent for baking and cooking. My Grandma was a wonderful cook. She could make simple pasta with butter and parmesan taste like the best thing in the world.  My Mom cooks all types of different ethnic meals and has a wonderful recipe collection. My sister, well my sister went to baking and pastry school. Enough said. Every year at Systemation we do a cookie exchange.

The first pair was too high but pretty, the second pair was comfortable but not so pretty,  hopefully the third pair will be just right (when I find it). My initial instinct was to wear flats or a very very small heel. I was being practical at that point.
