have fun {chocolate chip cookie recipe!}

In all of the chaos and business of life, we should always make it a priority to have a little fun, have a girls night, pop some popcorn, watch a movie, dig into God’s word together, do some face masks, and don’t forget to have fun!! You are only young once, so make sure to take a day/night off from worrying about all of the homework & things that need to be done!

“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:34

Maybe you can’t just take a day off from work or school or your busy life, but maybe you can take an hour or so out of your busy day to make some yummy chocolate chip cookies! I know that making cookies is always a fun way for me to get some relief & to “get away” from everything. Here is one of our all-time favorite recipes that we love to make together, it’s always fun in the kitchen, especially with these yummy {and foolproof} cookies! If you aren’t convinced, go mix up a batch and pop those babies in the oven and see just how good they are!
