12/12/12 – such days have already been, but certainly will not be, at least not in this life. A day with such a numerology is considered lucky and that’s true. Successful and happy moments, smiles and joy filled my day. And as luck wouldn’t have been enough, a lot of big flakes fell from the sky as if someone was sifting flour, forming a great landscape. The trees were covered with snow, happy children were throwing snowballs one in another, each of them has found an occupation in his own will. I love to watch as snowflakes slowly fall  on the ground, but mostly I would love if at the time when the snow is intense, to be out and catch snowflakes in my palm. I don’t want to forget this day ever and that’s what I wish to you too. Have a nice ending of the day and don’t forget to live your life to the fullest and enjoy every minute of every day!

So, in a good dessert you can find carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, mineral salts and vitamins, strictly required for our body.
