baked with love

A dear friend and neighbor who is a young, wonderful mother, is going through cancer treatment right now. I took these to her yesterday in hopes of letting her know I love her and that I am thinking of her.

YUM! What a sweet friend you are. The cookies look scrumptious. I'll have to try the recipe. I'm so impressed you got them to make a perfect heart shape!

I'm sure she will love them! What a beautiful blog you have! I am completely inspired by your photos and stories of your family:) I especially love the "I'm gonna miss this someday" threads!
