Home sweet home

After a long day that started at 5 am, I arrived back in Florida around 10 this morning. My mom picked me up from the airport and had a hot coffee waiting for me. One of the many reasons why my mom rocks!
Most of the day was spent sleeping because I barely slept last night, but tonight my family went out to dinner to celebrate my Dad’s birthday.
Every year when I was little, my Dad would bring home a cake for us to celebrate. It wasn’t just any cake though, it was a chocolate cake from a restaurant called Bill Knapp’s. The restaurant is long gone, but a few weeks ago I was perusing the aisles of a grocery store in Columbus and I stumbled upon one of those cakes! I guess after the restaurant went defunct, a company bought the recipe and produces the cake for specialty stores. The cake somehow survived airport security and the flight home and my Dad was totally surprised. It was a total blast from the past, and he really loved it.
