This week felt like it flew by with the start of holiday gift guides and The Print Shop is prepping for holiday orders. I took a little time at night to unplug and finished The Queens Gambit and started The Undoing. I am doing an online cheese class with La Cuisine today and Jennifer Greco shares How to Build a French Cheeseboard on the blog.
