j: The (amazing) thing about committing to a year-long love project is that you start to see love everywhere.

jb: In my family, the birthday kid got to select whatever cake they wanted from “the book of cakes” and mom would (magically!) make it for you. (Thanks, Mom!) I especially remember a cake shaped like a butterfly and another shaped like a train.

I am happily continuing the tradition with my son; every year so far he requested either a train or a fish. But this year he surprised me with a request for a “cake that looks like the red M&M guy”. And the tradition continues… 🙂
