1) my kids actually get to know their cousins and grandparents on their turf

2) I have my husband 24/7. No outing is too intimidating when you know you have a pair of hands helping you with meltdowns and feeding my crew. He’s back at work now.

3) Being with people all day long. Every day is a party!

After every vacation I always come back with a few epiphanies. That may be a strong word. Nuggets of realizations? For instance, I always thought I was an introvert. Growing up as the youngest of ten I was always with people but I’m surprisingly good at being alone and being independent.

I may be good at it but I’ve realized I’m an extrovert. Extroverts get their energy from people and introverts get their energy from being alone. If I’m having a bad day, a pedicure by myself won’t fix it but a chat with a girlfriend will.

You guys know how much I loved these S’mores Cookies. When I first made these S’mores Thumbprints, the recipe said it made 60 cookies. No way! But as I looked at the recipe closer it said to use a teaspoon of dough to make each cookie. That’s tiny! Who does that?

I still didn’t get 60 cookies but the whole point is to have a small graham cracker base (they will spread) with marshmallow and chocolate on top.S'mores Thumbprints - a small graham cracker cookie topped with marshmallows and chocolate. the-girl-who-ate-everything.comS'mores Thumbprints - a small graham cracker cookie topped with marshmallows and chocolate. the-girl-who-ate-everything.comS'mores Thumbprints - a small graham cracker cookie topped with marshmallows and chocolate. the-girl-who-ate-everything.com
