it’s time for some reflection. my birthday is in less than a month. it’s gonna be a big one. i still don’t know what i want to be when i grow up, but that’s okay because i’m in no hurry to be a grown up.
i made my baby a cake today. i made a few mistakes and wasn’t happy with the results, but he ate a huge slice, looked at me all glassy-eyed and said, “nobody’s ever been so sweet to me. nobody’s ever made me a cake from scratch. i love you and appreciate you.” so, yeah, total fucking success.
it reminded me of this cake my son, Zachariah, and his then-girlfriend made me almost a year ago. it was beautiful and delicious.
