My Favorite Things on My Birthday

No matter how old I turned, flowers from family or friends make me happy. I am not so interested in the present anymore. I value more how I spend time on my birthday. Yet I still want have flowers and a cake, a very good one.

My husband and I started making a cake for a special occasion like my daughter’s graduation, Mother’s Day, or birthday. It’s always same cake, a simple sponge cake with berries and whipped cream, but it’s super delicious just like a cake sold in my home country, Japan. My husband baked a sponge cake and I helped the decorations for my birthday cake.

I took a day off and enjoyed a photo walk with my favorite camera. Later my husband and my dogs joined and we had a good time at the park in warm sunny winter afternoon. There was no present because I didn’t want anything. However, I was so happy spending my special day with my husband, my dogs, flowers, a cake, and my camera. My favorite things. 🙂

いくつになっても誕生日にお花をもらうのは嬉しいものです。年を重ねたせいか最近はあまりプレゼントを欲しいと思わなくなりました。と言うより欲しい物が無いと言った方が正解かも。花とケーキと好きな物や人に囲まれてその日を過ごせればそれでとても幸せだと。

ケーキは数年前から旦那と私でシンプルな苺と生クリームのケーキを作るようになりました。日本で売ってるような本当に美味しいケーキを娘の卒業祝いの時や誕生日、母の日などに作りました。今回も旦那がスポンジ生地を焼いて私が飾り付けを担当。

休暇を取ってその日はお気に入りのカメラを持って街へphotowalk 。後で旦那と愛犬のココとハルも加わり公園で晴れた冬の午後を過ごしました。

花とケーキとカメラ。そして家族と一緒に過ごせた特別な日は幸せな時間でした。
