I like things that are simple but special. And I can say that yesterday was special. Plans had been made and revealed for a special family birthday trip coming soon, a few handmade gifts (which were excitedly worn out and about yesterday), and the birthday girls chose their favorite somewhat local activity for the day with a picnic lunch.
Two petite cakes were made (here's an excellent coconut flour vanilla bean yellow cake recipe) and decorated without any pressure of a birthday party on my heels. I took care of cakes while Bobby bathed kids. We celebrated on the back porch with wet-haired kids and merry singing.
It was simple, not spectacular, and absolutely enjoyable. I love making these kind of memories.
Isn't that what family is all about??
