Hardy makes her own seasonal preserves,
like apple-cranberry compote that she’ll
pair with curried chicken salad in a wrap
for the café and serve dolloped atop the

It’s that simple.
Play in the snow. Carve some turns.
Enjoy dinner out. Snowshoe in the moonlight.
Snuggle by the fire. Tuck in for the evening.
Get a good night’s sleep–you’ll need it.
Because there’s more to do tomorrow.
