A Birthday

Monday, April 25, 2016

I'm not sure quite when it happened, but sometime when I was in high school I realized my favorite dessert (which would forever appear on my birthday) was not cake, it was pumpkin pie.

For years I had loved pumpkin pie at its proper time in the year, Autumn. But why on earth could you not have pumpkin pie at different times? After all, the orange cans of pumpkin that were in full force near Thanksgiving were still sold the rest of the year (just hidden down the baking aisle).

Saturday, April 23rd, I became 25. Quinn and I had spent the previous night in our little kitchen, he mixing ingredients while I prepared the pie crusts. It really didn't feel like my birthday was the next day...after all, the best birthday present ever had been given to me weeks before hand in the form of a corgi! But I'll take any excuse to eat pumpkin pie.
In case you're wondering, when I blew out the candle I wished for another corgi. 

I had an amazing birthday, filled with lots of wonderful friends and family and one cute corgi puppy. I feel very blessed, and so happy that I have so many wonderful people in my life who love me. Birthdays are wonderful in the fact that they show you how much you have to be thankful for.

"'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'" 
Jeremiah 29:11


  1. I am so glad you had a wonderful birthday. Your birthday pie looks yummy. Enjoy 25!

    1. Thank you, Donna! I think 25 is going to suit me just fine. :)

  2. Finally reading on a big screen so I can comment, yay!

    That birthday pie looks so yummy, and it's funny because I picked up a can of pumpkin a couple of weeks back (I was just craving something pumpkin), so it's making me feel very inspired!

    Can't wait to keep reading; your blog is really a lovely spot here on the ol' internet. <3
