31 cookies

I found a package waiting for me just inside our front door this morning. From my mother, I gave her a call to see if I was allowed to open the package before my birthday this Saturday. I turn 31. Mom said I could open the package now so I could enjoy eating the gift this week. Inside were 31 homemade speculas (dutch spice cookies, my father is half dutch and our whole family enjoys dutch treats). 31 cookies for 31 years. Even though they smell amazing, I can't bring myself to eat one yet, to break up the number. And they look so nice all in a row....


  1. happy birthday, Rilla! I hope you've eaten them by now.

  2. can you get any sweeter than that?? i think not. janet is the best!
