I had a perfect birthday. I love doing something simple on my birthday, low stress. We had the Roundhills over for Paninis and Chuck. Sarah made the best cupcakes I have EVER had. I am not exaggerating. She made them right before they came and substituted coconut milk for milk and and frosted them with the perfect orange color and…well…they’re DIVINE. Make them right now: here’s the recipe. (They’re Martha’s, of course)While we were waiting for Hazel and Finn to fall asleep we watched a hummingbird documentary. Do you ever have one of those moments when you just feel so euphorically happy? Eating my second coconut cupcake while watching hummingbird after beautiful hummingbird with friends who were just as interested as me was magical.It also seemed like a portent because my parents gave me a hummingbird tea towel as a birthday present, and I’d recently painted the above painting but hadn’t shown it to anyone. Hmmm.
