Friday Faves – No. 11

I love the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day. There is always so much anticipation for the year to come. It’s also restful in a lot of cases so I hope you were able to get some rest this week.

What are your plans for New Year’s Eve? I know for a lot of us it’s a built up holiday but I have plans to be low key and I am so excited. And I’m definitely making this dip to go with some veggies!
