Sweet Sistering

Seems like a perfect Saturday built for sistering. Yes, sistering. A verb. Meaning to spend time with your sis doing all the things you love doing together. (We may have made that up 😉-don’t check Webster). Our sistering usually includes something sweet to bake and something crafty to make. And that’s just what we will be doing this Saturday. Sistering around Toffee Dusted Frosted Cookie Butter Cookies and table full of arts and crafts. Sistering at its best!
