Today has been a wonderful day. The sun was shining, and my husband was sweeter than ever. We were even on time to church, which was wonderful. There is something about weekends: I feel myself when I get to stay at home, get things done around the house and spend time with Kendall.
One of the many “cherries on top” today was making cookies. Kendall helped me, and together we made up my batch of chocolate chip cookies with a few little secrets that make them DELICIOUS.
We then went on a walk in the beautiful sunshine and delivered our cookies to: our next-door neighbors (not home…so we left a note. We don’t know their names so we just called them “neighbors.”), a woman down the street named Marisol (I helped her shovel her walks one day and I wanted to say hello again), and my visiting teaching companion, Sarah. I LOVE taking treats to people. I think it’s one of the better feelings one can feel…and it’s made even better when your husband does it with you!
