Cocoa-chini Papa Pie


For papa’s birthday, we made a pie. A mere sliver of our love for him and mama.

There are no words to describe how grateful I am for my parents, for they have given me everything. It’s my parents who inspire me to do what I love, to work my tushy off, to dream big… and they lead by example. 

All I really want to say today is thank you to all the incredible parents out there. Happy, healthy families are the foundation of happy, healthy societies. Raising love is the most important job in the world, and you’re killin’ it out there.

Love, love and love always,

~ Sufey

Decorate with maca, chia seeds, coconut, almonds, or whatever you want! Go wild. 😀

    That looks yummy… and sounds easy enough for me to try… I will, Sufey. Your parents are fortunate to have a sweet child like you. Indeed, to have a happy, supportive family is the greatest blessing in today’s world. Stay happy! Stay blessed!
    Lots of hugs…
