If I have one claim to fame, it’s that I love birthdays! Just to clarify, I don’t exactly love my birthday (just try not to forget it), but I love making other’s birthdays special. My husband’s birthday was yesterday. As mundane as celebrating your birthday on a Monday can feel, there is nothing like walking in the door to three highly excited kids who can’t wait to begin the birthday festivities! As the matriarch of the family, I felt it incumbent upon me years ago (quite willingly I might add!) to make sure that I make each person’s birthday feel special, and my husband’s is no exception. It starts with the homemade cards and is nicely topped off with a tribute of writing down all of the favorite things we love about that person played in a guessing game fashion. It’s amazing the things that are shared.
Another favorite tradition is the dinner selection process. Of course if it’s your birthday, you get to pick out the menu! Let’s be truthful though, it’s really the dessert that is the highlight in our house. The dessert of choice every year for my husband is French Silk Pie. We have tried French Silk pies from all walks…store bought, homemade, local restaurants but hands down the favorite pie is from Keys Cafe. Lucky for me all I had to do this year was add it to my grocery cart from the local favorites section of Coborns Delivers and Keys Cafe was delivered to my door. It doesn’t get any easier than that.
