Thank you cookies

My Romantic HomeHow do you say

to some wonderful people?  If you are me, you make sugar cookies with chocolate royal icing.

People who do nice things for my children are special.

When I need to say thank you, I am happy for you, I am proud of you, I am thinking of you, and I love you, I seem to say it best with cookies. 

Hugs work well, too. 

And by the way, it is super easy to make chocolate icing.  I just add cocoa powder to the icing along with the brown food coloring.  The first time I made brown icing and it tasted vanilla, it really confused my brain - it did not compute at all.  I can't handle it without the cocoa powder...

So to these special friends, many thanks and love from Lisa and Isabelle!
