It's the second day of Christmas and my true loves gave to me ... books! Hurray!
When I take a break from reading, I'll scope out some of the gorgeous websites and blogs in this book, Blogging For Bliss - Crafting Your Own On-line Journal ... a Christmas gift from my daughter, Sprout Sara.

It is a beauty ... just look at a few of these photographs styled by Christine Rudolph and shot by Ditte Isager! This is food and photography genius! The book is a portrait of Chef René Redzepi and his Copenhagen restaurant, NOMA. Gorgeous food, gorgeous chef, gorgeous restaurant ...
