1. We eat a lot of dessert. Last night at dinner, we cut into a cake that was a perfectly-iced, five-layered thing of beauty. Within 5 minutes, it was nearly demolished, along with cookies, brownies, and cupcakes. Tonight there will be several pies, brownies, and cakes AND no less than 6 flavors of homemade ice cream.
2. The ease with which I cry? Yeah, that's totally genetic. We had sharing time this morning where people were talking about important life events and no kidding, every single person who shared started to cry. (except me!) I had forgotten what an emotional bunch we are. I wonder if anyone has ever researched into what I'll call the "crybaby" gene. They would need to look no further than my family and they'd find it.
3. I read something recently about how Prince William and Princess Kate were at sort of a disadvantage in their marriage since they don't have very many examples in their families of what a long, healthy marriage looks like. I do not have that problem. I am surrounded by numerous aunts, uncles, great-aunts, great-uncles and cousins who have been married for 50+ years. I am blessed.
