My amazing White Chocolate Apricot Scones have been featured on my blog many times.
The first time was when I baked these for our friends when their daughter was killed in a car accident.
The last time was when I baked 250 scones for our daughter's wedding.
Today, I want to talk about Love your neighbor ... bake them scones.
As a follower of Jesus, I want to be known on our block, as a family that is kind and thoughtful and fun.
So, each time someone moves into our neighborhood, I try to make it over in the first week with these delicious scones.
If you have moved recently (or ever) you will remember the exhaustion and confusion.
Where is the coffee maker, the measuring spoons, the pillow cases? You will remember working hard and being hungry, with no time to figure out just where the grocery store is.
Enter ... me, with a plate of wonderful, just baked scones, to say "welcome to our neighborhood."
