Happy Valentine's Day! Feeling quite festive today, I made this yummy flour-less chocolate cake for dessert tonight. It's one of my favorite things to make, especially on Valentine's Day when I'm listening to Frank Sinatra and wearing my red sweater and pink rosette earrings. My friend, Andi, shared the recipe with me years ago. Good friends have good chocolate cake recipes. :) You can't go wrong with chocolate and 1 1/2 sticks of butter. I think the cake is smiling back at me.
Pink and red are so cheery!
My girls and I had fun reading our Valentine's books together. The boys opted to play Lego instead.
After breakfast, Lily and I made a few more Valentines to hand out today.
Lord, you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lot secure. The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places. Surely I have a delightful inheritance. Psalm 16:5-6
