An Indie Holiday Story: Nikki from bumble and lu


It’s getting closer to Christmas, Hanukkah & the Winter Solstice!  It’s so exciting I can’t wait. And, here is another An Indie Holiday Story for you this Friday before the holidays.  It’s from Nikki from bumbles & lu. Nikkie made the lovely ornaments above for the Freshly Baked and Cake & Pie’s Third Annual Holiday Ornament Swap and you can read about her process here.

Now, Nikki shares a couple of things that are special to her about the holidays.

1. What’s your favorite holiday cookie?

My favorite cookie recipe is Oatmeal Scotties – Betty Crocker’s oatmeal cookie recipe, minus the cinnamon with butterscotch chips substituted for raisins.

2. Are you doing anything special for the holidays this year?

My holiday plans this year – I got married in October and I’m heading to my parents in Charleston, SC to have a meet & greet reception with all the folks that couldn’t make it to Texas for the wedding. It’ll be the first time I’ve spent the holidays with my family for 3 years – I’m nervous & excited to see everyone.
