sometimes it’s totally worth ordering your own cake

This was the tastiest cake I have ever eaten, and one of the prettiest. (Although I do have fond memories from childhood of grocery store cake straight from the fridge the morning after.)

When I posted about my neurotic relationship to my birthday I didn’t realize I’d be in such good company! I appreciated all of your comments and funny stories… It seems that part of adulthood is doing some self-parenting along the way. Up with self-parenting! In the end, my birthday was truly special, spent with some dear friends and complete with lovely gifts. In partiucular, some awesome books: The Silver Spoon (According to my italian friend, the bible of italian cooking that has finally been translated) Water for Elephants which I had been eyeing for its intriguing cover and Celebrations Rituals Prayer by Maya Angelou. I also have a gift certificate and since we all have similar tastes in books, I’d love to know your current faves.

Some other fun indie artist gifts I received are a camera strap (from Boho girl) a custom pendant with a pic of Ben inside (thank you Thea!) and an pin board from Ideal (I plan to use this as a manifesting tool for the coming year)

    I have been surfing on-line more than three hours these days, but I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s lovely value enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made excellent content as you did, the internet will likely be much more useful than ever before. “I think that maybe if women and children were in charge we would get somewhere.” by James Grover Thurber.

The pumpkin pie pusher.

She saw me holding the pie with a look of uncertainty. "Do you need some help?" she asked. "How much is it?" I replied, aware that gluten-free pies (or anything gluten free) can be super expensive. She showed me the bottom of the box - $23.95. "Dang", I said. "It's...
