On Sunday we celebrated the 50th birthday of my dad. He dined on a nice meatloaf and oven potatoes (crispy the way you love them, Faby ;)), but yet we somehow forgot a cake! Later in the evening, I whipped up a mini chocolate cake and placed it in the microwave to ‘bake’. No frosting, however, because everyone in my family hates it! …
except for yours truly
Considering we were candle-less as much as we were cake-less, I fashioned a small birthday candle out of various pieces of paper and colored markers. He began to eat around it and I gasped, in shock– my dad never blew out his candle! He quickly puffed onto it before diving into his cake. It turned out to be a pretty good birthday afterall.
One day you’ll be able to celebrate it with us. 🙂
Until then, sending you kisses from miles away,
