Birthday Blessings

Beautiful birthday roses from my husband this morning!

The girls baked and decorated this gorgeous and 100% AIP Raspberry Cake!
(Update: They used this recipe from Autoimmune Wellness, substituting applesauce for the apple puree.) 

They also made AIP Raspberry Lemon Gummies adapted from the Cherry Lime Gummies in The Healing Kitchen!

They were able to fit all 39 candles on the 6" cake!
... and I was able to blow them all out before they melted.


My family all spoiled me today with beautiful cards, thoughtful gifts, special meals, and even Masses offered for me by my brother-in-laws! I've been so blessed! 



  1. Happy Birthday Jessica!!!! The girls did a BEAUTIFUL job on the cake! It looks so pretty and yummy!
