Me, I got nothing to hide that I would show on Facebook anyway, but then I thought about the nieces who may.

I thought to myself that creations a professional pastry chef can execute with a frosting filled piping bag couldn’t match what these kids made.

Wow! What a great list of fun events and powerhouse women! Have a wonderful weekend!
