My birthday is October 8, and for the first time it honestly snuck up on me. Usually I can see it coming at least a couple weeks in advance, but I was surprised to find that it was a few days away when William asked me what I wanted. I guess I've just been wrapped up in a lot of other things lately. I haven't really been keeping track of how old I am, anyway, so I guess it's not a huge deal.
A birthday cake was served during the festivities following Reese's blessing, and I gave permission for it to be cut before we got a picture of the whole cake.
Later, we celebrated with candles in a pecan pie. Mmmm... Happy birthday to me.
