{blueberry coffee cake}

Such a sad day for our country.  Waking up to the horrific news reports really stops you in your tracks.  My heart goes out to all the people + families suffering in Las Vegas.  There are really no words.  I just can’t shake it today.  And I feel as though there is nothing I can do, except be kind.  Do something nice for someone.  All this hate has to stop!
