Weekly Winners – It’s My Birthday

Happy birthday to me.

I am the baker in the family, and it means that whenever there is a birthday in our family, I am the one who bakes the cake. It also means that I haven’t had a birthday cake in years – because I refuse to make my own. I know, I know – it’s not really a huge deal. I don’t even like cake that much (cookies, on the other hand…). But there is something about having a birthday cake.

And I’ve missed having one.

This year, my mom facilitated my daughters making a cake. The girls did everything. Everything except putting the cake into and out of the oven.

And it’s beautiful.

Today I turn thirty-four. Not 29 for the fifth time. Not 25, like my neighbor was kind enough to say.


And I kick off my year with a cake that is overflowing with love. And chocolate.

I’m eager to see what this year holds.

  1. I know I’m a little behind, I haven’t been online this weekend, but HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Hope it was a great one! XOXO

  2. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! I too haven’t had a cake in years, but with no children I think I may break down and bake myself a cake. 2 layers. Chocolate with chocolate frosting. Just like mom would have made. 🙂 Hope the day was a start to a great 34th year.
