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

I adore this post. It reminds me of Ray Bradbury's Dandelion Wine. Thank you Elspeth.

Thank you Bruce. Have looked up your reference, and now I'll have to go to the library and check it out. Thanks for sharing!

Happy spring, at long last.
