A Treat For Mama

I finally took the advice of a few of my wise friends who have been telling me to treat myself to something. Last night was the night!!! I put Gracie Mae Mae to bed and then snuggled in my own bed with a hot cup of tea, a yummy white chocolate fruit cake and my beloved borrowed kindle!! It was pure heaven in China!!

I think I loved the box the cake came in as much as the cake itself. It felt like a real gift to myself!!

Thankful for all my friends who are leaving encouraging comments and sending me emails. I so appreciate them, more than you can imagine! Keep em' coming!

Good for you! I know you must be exhausted!

Hugs to you sweet friend!

So glad YOU had a moment to indulge!

You deserve it!

(honestly that is how I get thru my everyday- coffee in the morning especially for me, then a little hidden chocolate midday just because and then me time on the computer at night hehehe- don't tell anyone!)

It makes the sweet times all that much sweeter!!

So proud of you and what you are doing!!
