DIY- photo project

Nothing makes my heart sing quite like the smiles of my children. When they flash me an honest to goodness “I’m happy” smile it melts my heart. We all just want our kiddos to be happy don’t we? Recently a good friend sent me an email that her daughter would be turning 13, and for […]

This recipe is for my birthday boys, because they both love chocolate…lots of it!
