Today was a beautiful day spent with family and friends. I am so thankful to God for everything he’s blessed me with in my life- trials and all. He’s made me such a strong person. I owe everything to Him. I had some time today to make some delicious Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies. They came…

WIP – Tam-ara hat & Lion Brand Yarn Studio NYC
