Yesterday was my birthday, and today is my mom’s: 1/11/11. I am now the age she was when I was born, which means she is twice my age today.
I feel older. For the first time in my life, my birthday is making me feel older.
But not really any wiser.
I want to say a quick thank you to all my amazing friends who wished me a happy birthday or took me to dinner, or bought me presents, or babysat my kids. I love you all. You’re the best!
After eating all those cherry scones yesterday, I knew I couldn’t handle a whole cake, so that one there is a vanilla cupcake I had in the fridge. I peeled off the wrapper, cut it in thirds, and then spread cherry jam in between the layers. I just did a quick buttercream frosting and then drizzled some lemon glaze over the top that I had leftover from the scones.
