You know when you have great family. They give you fine liquor for Christmas. Mine gave me a bottle of Aurora Rare Vodka. It is a product of Elk Island Spirits in Alberta.

I have wonderful family who, unlike your faithful writer, have a warped sense of humour. They make up for it by being very original and generous. Today, I opened this Christmas present to find a personalized cutting board with my blog address and a not to She Who Must Be Obeyed. It is very high quality with no seams and a good thickness. The art and manufacture was comes from Naturally Art by Alanna Gail.
I love the board and my family for their thoughtfulness and kindness! I will use it well!
