I am a mom, a wife, a sister, a daughter, a social worker, a business owner, a consultant and a friend. Some days I feel like I am in a million places at once....constantly on the go. Checking off my "to-do" list...making phone calls, writing case notes, checking emails, scheduling doctors appointments, cooking dinner. You get the picture.

With so much going on, the last thing I wanted to do was bake a cake last night. But, we were clebrating Talia's birthday this weekend and I wanted to make it extra special. The look on her face when I showed her the cake when she woke up this morning completely made up for my lack of sleep. To see her smile and excitement, made it all worthwhile. Truth is, I would go without sleep for the rest of my life if it brought my daughter joy. She is what truly sparks my creativity. She has been the focus of all of my creative efforts for the last five years...handmade costumes, scrapbook layouts, pajama play-doh playdates...

These last five years have been such a gift. I can't wait to see what creative adventures lie ahead of us! Happy Birthday baby girl!

  1. Awesome Cake. So cute. I think the best birthdays I can remember are the simple ones when mom made the special cakes.
