Making cake is just an excuse for us to eat sugar soccer balls for breakfast.

Because the best thing after birthdays is leftover cake and birthdays are meant to be celebrated for a while.  And even more than cake or making cake or having birthdays, knowing that we get a chance to say thank you for being in our lives is what brings us the most joy.

This was a team effort as most worthwhile things we do often are.  How thankful are we for this team?

Thank you love, for dreaming with me about neat adventures and making them come true.

For loving our family and for hanging out with us

And teaching us cool things.

For being up for exploration and adventure.

We’re lucky to have you in our lives.

I’m lucky to have you as my husband.

And I’m hoping and wishing for many, many more years.

(PS. we used Joy the Baker’s Peanut Butter cake recipe and it turned out!  I love the Joy the Baker’s cookbook because it’s witty and sassy, the recipes are easy to follow and she has a single-serving cake recipe that is incredible.  She even tells you how to make cake flour and brown sugar too.)

(PPS. I bought the book because my best friend did.  And she also has a husband with the same name.  Thank you S. )
