chocolate cake with chocolate icing

First off, let me say that I’ve already been completely overwhelmed with gratitude, and I’m only 21 weeks into this pregnancy!

Not only am I excited about this new path in life, but so many others are excited for me as well. I’ve received a slew of gifts already, which have left me amazed at the outpouring of support and genuine excitement.

During the CrossFit Games three weeks ago, I made this treat to bring to a gym cookout and viewing of the games. It was quite a sweet treat, so next time I might cut back on the honey and coconut sugar a bit.
