Last night I prepared the fruit to get my first Christmas Cake made today.
I just love making my own Christmas cakes.
All that delicious dried fruit and nuts.
This morning the ingredients were mixed and the cake assembled.
This morning as I mixed using my beautiful old spoon I thought again about my dear Nana and Grandma. I have a spoon from each of their kitchens and I love and use them daily.
I thought about all the cakes that had been mixed by their hands with these very same spoons and the love that had gone into our family by doing so.
I thought about them and how much I miss them and being in their kitchens cooking.
So with my Christmas preparations finally started, I hope my family will one day remember the love that goes into the preparation of Christmas and maybe one day treasure the very special memories that I hope I have created for them.
