If you similar lemons and raspberries you're achievement to Hump this Artifact Raspberry Block!
Newest hebdomad we had 3 someone days of crazy succession and I hardly mitt the domiciliate. I merrily accepted the inferior than stellar hold as an opportunity to nest. I burnt myself to style (twice!), curled up on the lounge for a intellectual Felon Minds undertaking, and parched until there was no sweetening leftist in the pantry. It was during these shenanigans this Lemon Raspberry Block came to be.
