One DEFINITE bonus to birthday party season: people keep giving me cake! And I love cake! I’m the adult at the birthday party who cheerfully takes her piece when all the other adults are clacking on about how it goes straight to their thighs and how naughty they are to be eating a little sliver of cake.

And! Oh! “Homemade” birthday cakes – the ones that come from a box mix? With canned icing and stale candy sprinkles?! Be still, my heart – every awesome birthday party memory coming back at once and taking root in my stomach. Where cake BELONGS.

Are you reading Motherlover? I hope so! We’re six pages into the second chapter and revealing more about the world and the characters every week. I’m stoked to finally be telling this story, and I hope you’re enjoying it too. <3
