birthday traditions

For the past five years, Morgan’s spoiled me with a homemade birthday cake.

It’s always different. It’s always a surprise. It always makes me feel special.

This year, she surprised me by recreating the amazing coconut creme cake from our Sister Trip to Charleston! When she cut a slice out, I started jumping up and down because the layers were orange and pink ombre!! {The layers of the cake were dark pink at the top and gradually became lighter towards the bottom. Amazing!} Only in my wildest Pinterest dreams did I imagine being spoiled with an ombre cake!

Thanks for making me feel so special! Love you, Mo!

{I’m hoping some close up photos of the cake come my way so you can see the layers better. I was just too excited to wait any longer!}
