27 months...
















Today marks our 27 month LIDiversary, and since my new motto is that "chocolate cures everything", I decided to put that into full effect by making an obscenely fattening and scrumpdilicious chocolate turtle cheesecake. The recipe can be found here. It turned out REALLY well, the only change I would make is adding extra finely chopped pecans to the crust, there wasn't quite enough to fill the bottom of the pan. If any of you want to make it, I'd suggest another half a cup.

Have you stopped drooling yet?

We met up with our good friend D (who some of you met at our housewarming last year) and went out for dinner. We went to a really good Ethiopian restaurant and stuffed our faces until we begged for mercy ate leisurely.

Afterwards we came back to our place and had a SMALL piece of cheesecake. We had to. Really.

If anyone wants to come over for a piece of cheesecake, we have TONS leftover...seriously. :)













This month I added a charm that was sent to us by Doris, Dan and Daisy. The charm is a daisy which represents her sweet dog. :)

She also sent me a note attached to the charm that said this was from her bracelet, but she wanted Little Maple to have the charm and she loved the idea of passing it on to her.

So do I.

Thank you SO much for the beautiful charm. I'm sure little one will treasure it always. :)

Oh yeah...I am a believer in the 'chocolate cures everything' approach. Of course, this is why I have gained a pound for each and every month logged in...wouldn't want to have left any of them out (ugh).

Happy 27, chickadee.
