I know it’s a little strange to call it “our” birthday; my blog and I turn a year older today. The blog isn’t a living being, yet I feel very connected to it. It’s an extension of me. I always wanted to have a twin sister, and I’m not saying that this blog has fulfilled that yearning, but sharing my birthday with Sweet Potato Soul feels really special and intimate.
I made cupcakes to celebrate the occasion, and took off from work so I can spend the day appreciating the woman that I’ve become. The only thing that’s missing are the candles (opps…!) I am so blessed, yet so often I forget and take the little things for granted. Today as I bite down on a cupcake (or two), I meditate on the pure goodness and magic of the moment; giving thanks that I am alive and thriving!
Ice the cupcakes once they’re very cool, and enjoy!
