When, shortly after moving in to the house, I told Adam I'd just go ahead and sew the curtains for the living and dining rooms, I'm pretty sure he didn't foresee it taking more than two years.* I'm also fairly certain that when I first insisted, sometime nearly a decade ago, that I'd bake him a chocolate birthday cake from scratch, he didn't anticipate several years of nearly inedible chocolate cakes before I finally found a consistently yummy go-to recipe.**
But he stuck it out anyway. I'm lucky like that.
Well, this year's chocolate birthday cake was a success (see recipe linked above, which I highly recommend). And the curtains: they're finally done. You're looking at the last pair in the photo below. I'm finished. And could not be happier to have this checked off my list.
Happy birthday, babe!
*You may remember the saga of the curtains from various posts, including this one. Spoiler alert: I drastically miscalculate and then get lucky.
**And the saga of the birthday cakes is, again, spread around the blog, but is dealt with here.
