So, today is my 29th Birthday. Birthdays are always a hard for me because I'm never around all of my family. Also, when I was a child my mom use to throw me the most elaborate birthdays so as an adult its hard to live up to all those amazing parties.
Another thing that comes up for me on my birthday is my illness sometimes I look back on the past year and how many bleeds I've had and I wonder and worry about how many I'll have this year. Don't get me wrong, getting all kinds of nice gifts and getting to eat cake really helps but it's always there in the back of my mind.


  1. I know how you feel, it's always there in the back of my mind too when my birthday comes around. What I think about is how I'm here for another year, against a lot of odds, and how I want it to be another year of not letting this define me and my life. Not always easy, but it never hurts to try.

    I've lost the taste for regular cake anyway...cannoli cake though, now you have my attention ;)

    Happy belated birthday!

  2. i'm sorry your birthday makes you feel the same way but I'm glad to know someone feels the same way I do. It's never good to think of the worst but sometimes you can't help it!
    Thank you so much for writing!

    I've never had cannoli cake but it sounds delicious!

    1. Any true Italian bakery will have Cannoli cake at their should check to see if there is one in Calgary, it's a sinful pleasure :)

    2. Jonathan, I will def have to try it! any excuse to eat something yummy! Thank you again for taking the time to write! xoxo
