Happy Coffee Cake Muffins Baking!

**Many of you have been sending me wishes of good luck and happiness for the birth of my second child -which will be happening any day now- ....thank you ALL so much!  I am now on maternity leave from work and just waiting patiently for the Bambino to arrive. We don't know the gender of the baby. We chose to wait for the baby's entrance into the world for us to find out - I LOVE surprises!!!  I am feeling good - no signs of going into labor in this very moment....I guess anything can happen at any time!  I'm just hoping for a quick and uncomplicated labor like I had with my daughter.  I am optimistic that this will happen. :-)  Lots of gratitude for all your sweet messages and happy thoughts sent my way....I truly appreciate it!  xoxoxo to ALL! **
