Lovey had a mid-week birthday this year. Our invitation for celebration was met with friends, frosting and frolicking. While the cake started out pure and simply buttermilk chocolate goodness with a simple birthday blessing iced in, the children plucked their current icons from the toybox and lovingly thrust them into the smooth chocolate frosting. Surely an attempt to remind Lovey he’ll always be a kid at heart. The sweetness in Zuzu’s excitement at another’s birthday is such a warm reminder of what a kind heart that kid of ours has. We are so blessed.
Sunday Still Life is an evolving photo project started by Erin. It’s an invitation to explore the beauty and depth of life through traditional still life composition and / or photos and words to evoke inner stillness and reflection. If you feel so inspired, join in! Erin is on a cyber-vacation for the month of August and I’ll be hosting Sunday Still Life. After you post yours, stop by here and leave a link so we can all come visiting.
Keep it slow. Keep it simple.
Beautiful cake and sentiment–love the girls’ offerings! I’m looking forward to seeing Lovey and wish you 3 girls could be here… XOXO
it was a beautiful cake.
I didn’t make it this sunday, teenagers sleeping over took up all my time – and there was no still life around, I can assure you of that 🙂
