Tissue Paper Flowers

Maggie May's

My favorite plants are those that you don’t have to water. So rather than fill my house with cacti, I thought I’d play around with these paper flowers.

Sweets for Our Sweet

stuffullove

Over the weekend, we stood witness as dear friends Empol and Ca dedicated their daughter Annika Cailey to the Lord in a ceremony attended by close family and friends. The details were girly and sweet—a perfect reflection of darling little Annika.

My favorite details? The cups filled with wafer sticks, marshmallows, and chocolate coins to munch on, and the caramel cake from Estrel’s that was not only lovely but divinely delicious as well.

Welcome to the Christian world, Annika! We love you!

This recipe has been my go to chocolate cake and cupcake recipe for years. It’s very chocolatey and extremely moist and everyone loves it.

Little did they know it was practically under their noses, in their pantry, right there on the Hershey Cocoa box. Pair it with any frosting; vanilla, chocolate or cream cheese and it will never disappoint. It is truly “Perfectly Chocolate” cake.
