Happy Birthday to Me: 20 Lessons Learned This Year

Good morning! Today is my 48th birthday!




I thought as I have done other years I would share a few lessons/things I have learned this year. This is by no means a comprehensive list but a few things that stood out. 





































Thank you to all who have come by this week to wish me a happy birthday, I appreciate your sentiments and wish that we could get together to share a piece of the five cakes I have been making. So far I have made, a Pumpkin Carrot cake, the Chocolate Heaven cake shown above, and an Italian Cream Cake, I will be posting all of the recipes later. 

Have a great day!

    1. Loi, thank you so much. I will be doing all of the above. Sadly, I think I have a small case of "sugar overload" one taste too many of these cakes.
