The Lord truly blesses working mothers with bursts of energy. Most days I'm so tired when I come home, but having someone so happy to see me gives me that extra boost I need to resist the urge to tune out and snooze.
After-work play is one thing I need to keep working on for quality time and ideas. Otherwise, half the time it's iPad. Thankfully, I have a mental stock of Pinterest ideas to grab from.
This was one of them : a quick no-bake cake to make together. Just thirty minutes - and it was yum.

"Stir stir stir, till everything's a blur" - she still says this quote from our favorite blog My Milk Toof.
|I cut up the frozen berries and we added them to the filling.|
Lastly, some berries on top to make it pretty.
