Another Sweet Birthday Surprise: Black Forest Whipped Cream Cake Recipe

A Blogging Holiday and a Vacation Photo

I hope everyone is having a good week.  Things have been a bit hectic on my end so I’m taking a little blogging holiday today.  In place of the regular Tuesday craft or recipe, I am sharing a photo that I took on a trip to Charleston, SC this past summer.  I’ll be back later this week with a new project, until then . . .

So, thanks to Jaime, here it is.
