>Birthday’s have always been special in my family. They’ve always been a day full of celebration. My Mom ALWAYS made sure that we knew it was our day and that we were loved and special. She always made me a personalized cake that was decorated with something we were in love with at the time.
I remember this birthday in particular. I had to have been 3 or 4. It was the year that I got my bunny rabbit, Jack. I LOVE rabbits and to this day they are still my favorite animal. I used to cut pictures of rabbits out of magazines as a kid and put them on my tack board. This birthday was the year that my parents actually bought me a real rabbit. He was a french lop and he was huge. Our cat was actually afraid of him! I remember walking down the stairs into the basement while holding my Dad’s hand only to come around the corner and see a huge bunny rabbit looking at me. And I’m pretty sure I named him Jack because of my dad. We had a calico cat named Callie Co and a rabbit named Jack Rabbit. How creative, right?

|I must have been in love with 101 Dalmations that year!!! I sure was cute though.|
I also really enjoyed my 18th birthday. It was my first birthday at college. I spent the evening with the boy I was dating and my best girlfriend, Kimmy and her boyfriend, Matt. We didn’t do anything special, just hung out, but we had a great time.

My Mom also sent me home with a cake that she had made. It wasn’t decorated quite like the one from the birthday above, but she took the time to make it and that meant a lot to me. It was the birthday during my parents divorce and I remember sitting in my dorm room crying over my cake because I felt so grateful that my Mom had taken the time to STILL make me feel special on my birthday. She’s the best Mom in the world, she really is. I wish I still had a picture of that cake to share with you. She was so unhappy about the way it turned out and of all of all the cakes she ever made it’s the only one I can still see in my head and remember perfectly.
