I admire people who are cute. I really do. Cute people do cute things, and their cuteness lightens everything about them. I think cute people get away with more. Take my friend Vicki ... she's petite and adorable with long blond hair. I worked with her for many years, and she used to routinely do things like schedule manicures during the work day. So she would be out of the office for a couple of house. But in the end, no one really cared because "That's just Vicki and she's so cute!"
No one expects people like me, with my towering height, glasses and size 9½ shoes, to run off for a manicure halfway through the day. And I am sure that if I did, no one would find it cute. In fact, they might think it was a lot like putting nail polish on a giraffe ... totally unnecessary and not an improvement.
So when I get the chance to do something cute, I jump on it. Especially when it's so easy it really can't go wrong. Take today's recipe - it's for an Italian Crescent Wreath and it's a fabulous holiday appetizer. My daughter and I made it together - it was fun, easy and totally cute!
