It's A Birthday!

Today is my birthday.


I am not one of those people that needs big plans on my birthday...I'm the queen to my household of boys and quite frankly, because I'm the only girl I kinda sorta have it made all year round.

Not to mention that we were coming off of two REALLY crazy weeks with big holidays and parties and I had absolutely no desire to go anywhere but my pretty little garden and hang with my men folk.

One thing that is not the norm is the fact that this year I made my own birthday cake (and forgot to give that memo to that guy that I like so much who brought home my very favorite italian cream cake that I have every year) and I am so not a baker, but this cake spoke to me.

It said, "make me, please" and hello, who am I to argue?

A tall white homemade cake with a fluffy white homemade frosting filled with fresh strawberries.


Anyway, my day was spent dealing with work stuff and cleaning up from a big party we had had the night before and doing laundry and sweeping the floors, so at 6:00pm I was happily sitting on a stool at the bar, sipping prosecco and watching my husband make his world famous pasta.


I told my boys that all I wanted for my birthday was for them to all be home (thank you, Matthew, for coming home tonight!) and for a nice picture of them all.

Well...they were all home.


This is as close as I got to a good picture.

They owe me.

Well...maybe they don't. They did sing to me.


Thankful. I am thankful.
