Celebr8te!

I had a get together this past Saturday evening to celebrate the eighth anniversary of my accident which is coming up this Thursday, November 17. I like to have a get together every year to celebrate the fact that I'm alive, happy and well. It's a fun excuse to visit with friends, play games and eat yummy food.

This year I asked my mom to make rocky road tart – one of my favorite treats that I was introduced to by my sister Kristin who is an extremely talented baker. I also recently found a recipe online for Reese's peanut butter cheesecake brownies. The picture looked so enticing, and since I love Reese's peanut butter cups, cheesecake AND brownies, I thought the recipe looked like a "must-try!" They were WONDERFUL! The rocky road tart was amazing, too. Check out these mouthwatering pictures:
I'm so grateful to still be alive after being involved in such a horrific accident. It was so severe and it's a miracle I survived. I really should have died, and I'm positive that God had a hand in saving my life because I'm sure I wouldn't have survived otherwise.

It was a wonderfully fun night and I'm so grateful to have such nice friends to celebrate with!

Hi Heather,

What a great example you are. I am sure many people in your position would remember that day with sadness. It is a testament to your strength that you celebrate that day because you survived.

So happy to call you friend.

Your Utah Friend,

Tina
