Thirty’s Cake Walk

Oh what a wonderful first day of my 30’s!

And it was made even better by all of your sweet, thoughtful, lovely birthday wishes, thank you!!!

After being served breakfast at home I decided what I most wanted to do with MY day was hike.

Hike we did!  9 miles roundtrip and 3100 feet elevation gained.

The Priest.

We walked and talked and refueled once we (finally!) reached the top.

We arrived home late afternoon dirty and tired but there was no rest for this birthday girl.

It was yoga time.  30 sun salutations on the yoga deck later and it was time to party!

Hmmm, there was lots of good food and great friends but my pictures seem to be focused only on the booze and cake!

Holy birthday cake!!!

Tate ordered this beautiful beast from Albermarle Baking Company, they told him it would serve 20.  We cut 20 generous slices and were left with half a cake!

Mmmm leftover cake.


Alrighty, in the interest of containing this post to manageable proportions I will post some recipes in a second post.  Keep your eyes out for Goodness Green Dip and crackers in a few hours!

Thanks again for all the wonderful wishes!

P.S Kath has some lovely party pictures, she’s much more on top of the photography thing than I am!
