Yesterday I celebrated!
My son was home for the weekend and since his birthday falls midweek we celebrated his 20th birthday a few days early.
A birthday in our home always means an old fashioned from scratch birthday cake. Always Anthony's favorite part of his birthday!

1 c shortening
1 3/4c sugar
1 c milk
2 c flour
1t baking soda
1/2t baking powder
1/2c coco powder

2 c powdered sugar+ 3 T coco powder+1T butter+2T milk
I also had fun running yesterday started in a misty damp drizzle and ended in a warm ocean hug! Did not run in the Redondo Beach Superbowl 10K instead ran to Hermosa Beach and home through the crowds in Redondo Beach!
Celebrating the fact that my 14 year old and her friends are doing Sunday morning beach runs now and want to be on Cross Country next year!!!
I also had fun cheering against the Steelers (remember I am from Cleveland)
I am celebrating life because it is good!
