Well, it's time again.
Today, I'm counting my many many blessings; thinking of my loved ones - those here, those far away, and those gone; and taking stock of another year gone by. It gets blurrier every year, how fast the time goes.
I am rather quiet about this day. No celebrations at work. No real celebrations at home. A lovely wake-up kiss and sweet happy birthday from hubby are all I really need.
After passing the big ones, 16, 18, 21...I haven't had much use for the day. I'm not about anti-age recognition, I'm about low-key, post-holiday, done with the celebrating thing, let's got on with life.
But a little reflection, a little glass of wine...and a lotta chocolate cake...yeah, that's ok.
So - time to get out my favorite cake plate.
Bake a chocolate layer cake.
Light it up.
And it's time to face the mirror (and camera).
