anniversaries and cakes!

March 2, 2009
this weekend marks one year that james and i have lived in our little 2nd story abode. a year ago tonight, james and i packed our little things into a little truck and drove precisely two little blocks to a new apartment that was (and is) roughly 100 times nicer than our old place. {the next day, james left for a week-long trip to research (chase) turtles along the georgia coast. yours truly unpacked.}
to celebrate, james made his famous pancakes this morning (made with yogurt, not milk and soo good).
and i finally got to make cupcakes after craving them all week (thanks for the inspiration, danielle). coconut cupcakes topped with coconut cream cheese frosting.
delicious. (also yesterday marked month one of reading my tea leaves. yay!)
