This was the first Christmas that I can remember that we didn't get together with our beloved Villalpando family (Danielle's husband, Dan, is Josh's oldest friend in the world & I've adopted them as my own). Schedules and distance and time got between us this year. But every single time I make her pecans, I remember how much I adore them and their beautiful family. Hopefully some of that love goes into the pecans and the receivers feel some of the affection I feel when I make them.
Merry Christmas, Villalpandos. Merry Christmas, all.
Pecans for our sweet mail carrier, Rosa.
