Perhaps A New Beginning

Well, I've finally done it.  I've finally bought myself a camera.  I really can't remember the last time I've had my own camera--maybe 24 years ago--maybe less, maybe more.  Anyways, you get the idea.  So whenever I want a photo to make a blog post I have to borrow the girls' camera or ask Matt to take a photo for me with his expansive range of camera equipment.  Needless to say, I often just decide to forget the post and get busy doing something else.

But, haha, no more!  I now have my own camera that should be light enough to carry around in my purse.  See!


Now, theoretically, I'll be able to tell you about all of the silly things that pop in my head to write to you about.  Well, at least I'll no longer have any excuse.

I also want to show you my birthday cake that our cookie-baker-elf made for me today.  It's a layered lemon curd cake and it should be simply divine!  In the effort to be a good journalist, I did my research and made sure I sampled each layer so that I could tell you in good faith how it would taste.  So far it's mouthwatering! 


It's going to be hard to resist putting my finger in the icing before we are allowed to eat it tonight, but I'll do my best!!  Oh, and as for the single candle--we decided there just wasn't enough room to put all the candles necessary on the cake since it would look more like a porcupine than a cake so we settled on a single token candle instead.

Warmly,
Cheryl

  4. Thanks everyone! I had a lovely day with family, and Claire's cake was absolutely divine!! She's really quite the little baker for a 13-year-old.
