The One Thing That You Have That No One Else Has Is You image 0

Remember to LIVE as only YOU can y’all! There has never been, nor will there ever be another you. Relish in your unique & beautiful gifts. Trust in your inner voice and the vision you have for your life. The world needs YOU. So be you!

On to the cookies….There is something nostalgic about enjoying chocolate chip cookies after the first day of school. It brings us all comfort and joy around here, so it’s a tradition we’ve kept! I’m thankful the after school cookies & milk were able to pull out all of the details about the first day! The kids and I sat around the kitchen table together, and the details started pouring out!! If your are seeking information from your loved ones–pull up a chair & plate a warm batch of these cookies! Works like a charm.

 These cookies are decadent, gluten free, and made with whole ingredients! This recipe makes 2 dozen. We baked 1 dozen today, and put the remaining dough in the freezer for a rainy 🌈day. Moderation is key y’all even when it’s a “healthy “treat”.
