Happy Birthday to Me!

It's my birthday...It's my birthday...I'm going skiing...I'm gonna celebrate..hey, hey!

Ok, so clearly it is my birthday today.  I'm actually not totally hating the idea of celebrating this year.  I feel great about where I am in my life and feel completely blessed to live where I live, do what I do and be who I be (am).

Rather than sulking (as I've so famously done years 18-26), I'm going to enjoy every second of this year.  I'm going to celebrate with a spring ski trip to Mammoth with my family.  I can hardly wait!  The thought of my trip makes all of my busyness this month entirely worth while and entirely manageable.  I'm probably just deluding myself at the moment, but I feel downright relaxed working my 12-16 hour days.

Anyway, I wanted today's post to be light, so I'm going to share a handful of my favorite spring cakes:

If I ever spent time to plan my own birthday parties, I'd like a charming cake like this.  I'm sure I'll get to it some year.  Perhaps I'll plan a proper party for my 30th...but then again, I just might want to party it up in Vegas...we'll see.
