Cookie Festival

My girlfriend, Melissa, the one with 7 kids and a job
has been baking the past couple of weeks for her annual cookie festival.
 There must have been about 15 different varieties.
And with almost 20 guests going home with two of each kind, you know she made a whole heck of a lot of cookies.
I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it not for that handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy. Let's face it, friends make life a lot more fun.

The perfect ending to a lovely day.
Blessings to all,
