I am deeply satisfied after a lovely weekend of celebrations, which included a haircut paid for with a voucher I received from a Facebook Buy Nothing group, dinner with family at Maggiano’s, late night tapas at Harvest Vine and a stunning and delicious hummingbird cake made by a friend, and wonderful Mother’s Day celebration with two of my favorite moms, my mother- and sister-in-law.
If we were experiencing death by tapas after an amazing menu at Harvest Vine, my favorite Basque restaurant in Seattle, the hummingbird cake covered in buttercream and fondant nearly killed us. Bursting with all my favorite flavors, like banana, cinnamon and pecans, it was exactly what I ordered.
Mother’s Day, now decidedly more sweet than bitter thanks to my sweet babes, was celebrated with church and lunch and naps, a dream day for a 30 year old, I’d say!
In the midst of the quiet, I started a project I hope to continue this year and for the rest of my life. I took out a journal I’ve been saving for something special, opened to the first page, and recorded by hand, my dreams for 30.
