My little baby J has turned one!
We celebrated with a delicious Lumberjack Cake by Not Quite Nigella. You must explore her site if you haven't already. Her work is delicious.
We enjoyed a ride on the Carousel in Civic with friends who have made this a family ritual to celebrate birthdays. Indeed it was such a sweet thing to do, I think we should also make it a birthday ritual.
If indeed we last that long in this part of the country.
Meanwhile, we are currently in a contract to purchase a house. All is proceeding OK but we are not doing so without extreme caution. Neither of us could say we are excited. Neither of us can see that it is actually going to happen. The events of this year have knocked it all out of us.
