Kent and I are very blessed to have two amazingly talented daughters...our "favorite youngest" is Emily and she is a professional bakery chef and runs her own bakery, Lovely Layers Cakery, right here in Chico. Valentines is an especially busy time for her so I always save two days on my calendar to be Cupid.
Once that stint was done I found myself spending the rest of the day immersed in chocolate.....ooooohhhhh myyyyyy...there are no words!
and I got to spend hours dipping hundreds and hundreds of beautiful strawberries in both dark and white chocolate and putting wonderful sprinkles on them!
Emily worked circles around me decorating cookies and special dark chocolate cakes. Everything is just about ready...I got to leave after washing the dishes and will be back at o-dark-thirty tomorrow morning to assemble all the goodies in boxes and then my "favorite oldest" daughter, Jenny, and I will be one of three sets of people out delivering all these wonderful goodies to everyone.
I just thought you would enjoy sharing a very special part of my day...there really is something in my life besides quilts!
Oh, and speaking of other things in my life, Jenny (the favorite oldest) is a professional photographer and I just had to share some recent, and "new style" photos of my two favorite grand-daughters Chloe and Samantha. Not only do I love these photos but I love the blog post she just put on her website about not being perfect...very wise words from her heart.
This is my favorite oldest granddaughter Chloe...
This is realistic!!!
Thank you for allowing me to share a bit of "personal stuff" and maybe a little glimpse into my amazing family.
Hugs, Cindy :)
