BdayI love birthdays. I think it’s a great way to celebrate another year of life – and it’s better than the alternative!

I just celebrated another birthday a few weeks ago. It wasn’t a milestone or anything, but it reminded me how I’m surrounded my wonderful family and friends. Even our neighborhood “fairy” put the sign in our yard.

My husband and I love hosting, so we had a few family members over to celebrate. I made chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting, which were delicious, I might say so myself! You can find the recipe here.

My parents make a big deal out of birthdays. Growing up, we got to pick the restaurant to celebrate, they’d put up signs around the house, and include a greeting on the radio or TV. They certainly make us feel special — even now as adults.

Do you celebrate birthdays?
