SUNSHINE & BIRTHDAY CAKE // elspeth


The sun is out. The sun is out ! We made pizza for dinner and the girls played outside afterward, mixing dirt and chives and watermelon rinds into a chocolate cake they baked under the lilac bush. Three of us pretended to devour it with real spoons and one of us took an actual bite before realizing it was not, in fact, actual cake. I brought a blanket out and Alex and I sat, for a minute, wrapped up, watching the girls pick wildflowers and count the asparagus spears.

Four up! It's officially spring.

In other important news, last week my mom and my sister came to visit for my birthday, and my sister made an amazing chocolate cake. In case you need one—in case you have a happy, sunny celebration coming up, which I sincerely hope you do—here's the link

Vitamin health benefits are essential for your health, but it’s not always easy to know what you should or should not take. The reality is that you need to do a little research on vitamins and vitamin supplements in order to find out what they do, and then decide whether they’re the right thing for you.
