Father's Day

This weekend we were happy to honor our fathers! We spent a lovely afternoon at the Bailey's and the evening at my parents'. It's a good thing our dad's like to eat! Thanks to our dads for being such amazing role models and raising us to be who we are today! We love you!

I brought this dessert to the Baileys to help mark the occasion. I must say it was a hit and easy to make!
