For our Galentine's Valentine gathering this year, we celebrated with an appetizer party - and my contribution was a Gourmet Brownie Board. Filled with fresh homemade gourmet brownies, with dark chocolate, peanut butter, sea salt caramels, and chocolate truffles, together with fresh sweet raspberries and strawberries, everyone was happy!
it was a wonderful evening spent sharing memories and discussing upcoming wedding plans - so much fun! I am so incredibly blessed to be able to spend a fun evening with my five daughters! And with two new granddaughters, our celebration will only get better each year!
