when some close friends introduced us to their friends from another part of tennessee, i knew they were good people. friendly and kind, i was excited to soon learn they'd be moving to memphis themselves due to a career change.
there are three of them, if you're counting the little baby boy hidden inside that baby bump. what an exciting time in their lives and i can only imagine the jitters of a new city, new home, new career and new baby all at once.
so, what would be the perfect magic elixir to ease all their nerves? cookies. ok, maybe it isn't an answer in and of itself, but it sure is a nice way to welcome someone to the "neighborhood."
i used this recipe for peanut butter chocolate chip cookies and hoped that the growing baby would enjoy them the most.
to finish up the welcome gift, i boxed the sweets in a little white box.
then, added some ribbon for pizazz and cuteness. who doesn't love cuteness?
welcome to memphis- we hope you're going to like it here!
