BROOKE ELY DANIELSON

You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...” -Dr. Seuss
Ice Cream sandwiches! 

My sister had her first child last week so I was home cooking for the family during the labor day holiday. Dessert was requested and I wanted to make something special the family could enjoy that didn’t require too much fuss. Enter my maple chocolate chip cookies with a twist… ice cream sandwiched in the middle. (Recipe to follow)

"I scream you scream, we all scream for ice cream"

Cousin weekend in NYC. Laughter and Family are the best medicine….

Now all you can do is wait. It must be hard for you, but there is a right time for everything. Like the ebb and flow of tides. No one can do anything to change them. When it is time to wait, you must wait.

Trying to find them.

Here’s a 30-second experiment for you: Pull your shoulders back, look up toward the ceiling or sky, and smile. How do you feel right now?
