On April 30th last year, Kalei was born here in Utah. It was also Ryan's and my 4th anniversary.
At her one year birthday celebration, I made "Better Than Anything Cake." When I told my family in Hawaii that's what we call it, they think it's a Utah thing, and I get laughed at. So, I think I'll call it Better Than Zex Cake.
Kalei ate the whole thing:
There's this tensity that builds in our home at the end of April. April 30th is our anniversary, then May 4th is my b-day. Mother's Day is less than a week later. Over the years, we've lovingly refered to it as "Triple Threat." I always feel a little sorry for Ryan around this time...not really. This year, he did a good job of making sure I had something on each day, like my favorite Vietnamese pho he makes.
So, I've been sewing a lot lately for a boutique in June. Here is a bag I made recently for one of my neighbors, made of canvas and home dec fabrics:
My neighbor's husband saw this bag, below, that I had made earlier this year, and ordered one like it for his wife.
