We celebrated Livy's birthday with a small family celebration with lots of pink cupcakes.
She was so sweet, and at 14, has now arrived at the age when seeing the joy in others is more fun that experiencing the joy yourself. That's big stuff. I'm pretty sure I learned that lesson in my mid-30's. Or maybe it was just last week.
ps- At least 2 new Viet recipes coming soon! Crazy Caucasian mama is trying her hand at Viet cooking again!
