I’ve experienced the sweetest birthday month this year and it’s all because the Husband made sure that every week of January, I get to enjoy a slice of cake. The cakes he got me were not fancy but just very thoughtful because he made sure they were cakes I enjoy eating.
On a different perspective, I see the sweetness of each cake pertain to the sweetness of my life then, now and in future. I feel very blessed to come to my 38th year with lots of love, happiness and peace in my heart. I’m so grateful…so so grateful of the life I live, the special people close to me and the moments I spend with them. The past two years, I have gone thru a downsizing of sorts. It’s a process of knowing myself more and letting go of certain parts of my life. It was painful and took a lot of humility and acceptance, but liberating in the end. To be free of things that make me an unproductive and superficial person was the best gift of that painful journey. I pray that God will continue to guide me in this path I’ve chosen.
Anyway, back to my cakes. Every weekend the Husband got me a cake and I get to eat it on Saturday afternoons with coffee that he made.
Hokkaido Cheesecake (Mini) on the first weekend of January. It’s a cake that I frequently buy from Breadtop because it’s the perfect size for my Husband and I to share. I love its lightness and sweetness. Goes well with tea and coffee.
