There is a quote, “Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.” Kind of puts all the late-night existential fretting in perspective, doesn’t it? Or perhaps I’m just lucky. Today was my birthday, and I knew yesterday it would be a wonderful tomorrow, with well wishes from family and friends from near and afar.
I’ve had many good tomorrows in the last year: a second book published, a house purchased, new blogosphere friends made, old friendships rekindled.
And I’m earnestly, resolutely hopeful that there will be many more good tomorrows to come. After all, my wedding is just a few short weeks away.
The best part of today? The fiance and I went to pick up our wedding bands, and as we rolled their smooth, cool weightiness over our palms, he murmured, “I can’t wait to put this on.”
Ladies, if you find a guy who’s willing to say that about a wedding ring, I say, hold on that one.
I haven’t been able to carve out the space to bake more than the basics, but for my birthday I made myself a little tart: a buttery, orange-scented crust speckled with raspberries, then filled with a framboise-kissed chocolate ganache. It’s a combination I’ve loved and I’ll love for days to come.
Thanks to all of you for sharing in Dessert First with me. I look forward to many more sweet tomorrows with you!
