This year, it was a round number birthday. After finally catching up to the same age decade last December, my
Age milestones aside, we celebrated this year much the way we have celebrated in previous years. We did discuss the possibility of a big party, but it was a short-lived discussion. We are a very reclining pair.
On his actual birthday, we finished work early and enjoyed a leisurely late afternoon walk and a dinner for two. There were cupcakes for him to take to work, made using my reliable, never-fail vegan chocolate cupcake recipe.
On Friday, we celebrated again with family, with the same cake that has featured over the last three years. Thank goodness I documented it properly in 2012. Featuring 4 eggs, much chocolate, and cream in the icing, this cake is definitely not vegan - but it is always a hit when served up.

There may come a year when he wants a different cake, or we switch low-key celebrations for something more eventful, but for now...I am rather content with the April routines.
Happy birthday Mr B!
Do you have birthday traditions that bring out the same recipe year in and year out?
