I will be auctioning off a credit for 2 dozen custom cookies!
Valued between $48-$72 and all shipping will also be included if highest bidder is out of town.
Open to U.S. residents only.
I am not taking any new orders for a while, so this gives all of you who have emailed me about orders a chance to get some cookies!
I will be donating 100% of the proceeds to the fund for Julee and Preslee.

Family Pics

First off, I want to thank everyone for the sweet comments about the new baby. We are beyond excited and grateful for another sweet baby God has chosen to entrust us with. I just thought my house was crazy now, ha!
A couple of weeks ago we had family pictures taken and I have had a lot of people asking who took the pictures, so I thought I would share some pics and share the photographers info!
Our pictures were taken by Amber, and we are SO pleased. I cannot say enough good things about the way she handled the kiddos, and how easy she was to work with. We will be using her for all of our future pictures!
I know I'm partial, but ya'll, this melts my heart.

This picture is sweet for two reasons:
1. Taylor's face. It sums up her personality.
2. The first pic of "the bump." I think its just now sinking in that this is really happening.

And this, just this. She's beautiful.
There is something so sweet between these two. Taylor knows who to run to for sympathy, or to get out of trouble ;).
And these two; I am so blessed.
My sweet boy, I love the relationship between a mom and a son. He is such a blessing.
The big announcement :).
If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram you have already seen this, but I think this picture is too sweet not to share. The kids faces are priceless. :)
Thank you Amber!
If you are interested in having Amber take some pictures for you, visit her website at She is running a great special for the month of October; $75 for a family session and a CD to print as many prints as you would like! Fall is the perfect time for pictures, so don't miss out!


"From the fullness of His grace we have all received one blessing after another."
John 1:16

We are thrilled to announce we will be adding another sweet baby to our family in April.

A Year Later.....

One year ago this month, I made my first rolled sugar cookie. I had NO idea that a year later I would have made thousands of cookies and shipped them all over the U.S. I can't tell you how much I have learned about myself and life throughout the past year. I have no doubt that God has taken me on this journey and I am excited to see what the next year brings!
So, with that said I want to say a big THANK YOU to all of my customers and readers who have been encouraging and supportive, I'm looking forward to being part of many more parties and celebrations!

I can't celebrate 1 year of baking without some cookie pictures, so here are a few of my recent orders:

See you late Alligator baby shower.

Brody's 4th Birthday 

Addi's School Bus/Chevron Birthday

A close up of the rainbow chevron.

A colorful candy birthday party.

Another monogram.
 A Lululemon inspired baby shower.


And a picture of me with my sweeties :).
I have some really fun pictures to share at the beginning of next week, make sure you don't miss it!
*I am not taking new orders at this time. If you have an existing order with me this does not affect you.
