Twelve Rules For A Happy Marriage

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, there is no better time than now to think about friendships, relationships, love, and marriage. Of course everyone wants to be loved and appreciated all the time, but Valentine’s Day is a perfect time to express it in a very special way.

I came across this article a very long time ago, saved it, and decided to post it at this special time of the year, when so much love is in the air. I don’t know who the author is, or even where I originally got it from, but would love to share it with all my readers, especially my children, nieces, and nephews, and their loved ones.

Dark Chocolate Cake

Chocolate lovers beware…..this chocolate cake will call to you for a second serving!!!
I made this cake for someone’s birthday, who loves chocolate and lots of frosting. I used the Dark Chocolate HERSHEY’S Cocoa for the cake, and made a double batch of the Dark Chocolate frosting. It was very rich, very dark, and no leftovers.

Necklace and Earrings, as gifts for Bridesmaids.

I just visited a site which posted several great ideas for Brides-to-Be, to utilize as gifts for their Bridesmaids. I left my comments about a stunning gift my daughter-in-law created for her Bridesmaids, a bead necklace and matching earrings, in complementing colors to their dresses. She bought the beads, and created the jewelry by herself, which gave this gift a very thoughtful and personal touch. Every time the girls will wear this jewelry, they will remember the special day they all shared together.
