Everyone has their own way to deal with stress. Some choose healthy outlets like exercise. For some, its music. Some choose not so healthy, but lets not get into that…

I choose cooking. More often then not, baking cookies. There is just something about getting out my stand mixer and mixing together a batch of delicious dough….er cookies that just relaxes me. Makes me happy, relieves my stress.
