Three beautiful things from my past week:

Birthday Cake #3

1. I may have mentioned my birthday was last Friday and that I went home and that my mother brought out a cake. And then another cake that she’d made. Two seemed decadent enough, but then the next day there was a third cake. Three cakes!!! The last was a jelly roll style Mum made with vanilla cake and strawberry frosting enrobed in chocolate. Isn’t it gorgeous? I’m definitely going to turn 46 more often if there are this many cakes involved!

2. My alumni association sends Valentine’s Day postcards to couples who met during college. It always makes me extra excited to see it arrive in the mail.

3. We lost at volleyball this week, which doesn’t naturally seem like a beautiful thing. But our teams were well matched, the games were tight, we played well, and the score could have gone either way. It felt great to walk away after an hour knowing we’d left everything on the court.

How about you? What’s been beautiful in your world lately?
