Yes, today is my birthday. I’m 29. I’ve also decided that I’m going to stay 29 for the next couple years. I hope you don’t mind. I’m so thankful for all the birthday wishes over various social media outlets today. They just came flooding in. Thank you. All of you. My heart is a little whole lot fuller. 


Here’s to a fabulous new year full of new opportunities and new adventures. A year for love and a year for dreams coming true. With my whole, and now much fuller heart, I wish the same to all of you.

One. A little Bonnie and Clyde update… For the longest time now they haven’t been doing anything. This weekend I finally noticed some new leaves! Sweet!

Two.  I told you my recipe for White Chocolate Blueberry Waffles could be made into pancakes. I may even like them better this way. 

Three. Remember my Strawberry Rhubarb Coffee Cake? It was so delicious I decided to whip up another batch for my guests this morning. Yes. I had to cook breakfast on my birthday, but it wasn’t as bad as it sounds. They were wonderful people. They even sang Happy Birthday to me and gave me a card. Thank you!! 

Four. I saw these beautiful orange roses and Walmart and I couldn’t pass them up. They were literally calling my name. I’m a sucker for orange roses. They may just be my favorite. 

Five. Tonight my Mom put on a fabulous dinner for me! Bruschetta and Greek Salad…

Six. Chicken Parmesan with homemade tomato sauce…

Seven.  And my favorite, Spice cake. I just adore spice cake. The taste of it instantly reminds me of my birthday as that’s usually the only time I ever eat it. Just fabulous!

Eight. And one of the sweetest parts of my day, a birthday song from my nephews and niece. The best.    Being an Uncle is, and will always be, one of the greatest joys in my life. Love you little guys!

Tomorrow the birthday fun continues as I head out to do some shopping for an upcoming trip to New York City!!! More on that soon….

    Happy Birthday, Michael!

    Spice cake is my favorite too, my mom makes one with a caramel buttermilk frosting that is SO good. The frosting takes a lot of whipping by hand but it is so worth it.

    Hope you have a wonderful time in NYC. 🙂
