Today was the anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's birthday! I thought this would be a good day to post some pictures of Abe Lincoln's Kentucky home. Poppy and I went to see Abe's birthplace last fall.

There is a small… Continue reading Remembering Honest Abe….his Kentucky home and favorite almond cake!

And...another sweet… Continue reading Photo Challenge…Blue wrap up….Blueberry Cheesecake Bars, YUM!
