Decadent Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Today is my Hubby and I's 4 year wedding anniversary! I cannot believe we are already 4 years married. I was thinking about everything we have been through in our 4 years of marriage.

~ bought a new house, Adopted a crazy busy puppy (beagle named winston), left my job to be a Stay at home mama to 2 beautiful girls they are 9 months old and 3. if that is not alot in 4 years I dont know what is? Anyways I know I may complain about the small things in life sometimes but when I hit milestones like an anniversary I reflect a little and realize how grateful I am to have the life I have. So to celebrate today I wasnt in the mood for cake. cookies are good enough treats for us. My hubby loves anything to do with chocolate chocolate chocolate..My kind of man. I was in the mood for something very decadent. So here it is. Happy Anniversary Love...I love you very much. muah***xox
