  5. You know what?

    I loved this.

    The photos, the thought of you actually baking a cake (which surprised me), your beautifully composed photos, and then this last one of Ray . . . in that shirt with that expression.

    This is love.

  6. Kate is right. This whole thing is loaded with thoughtfulness and love, and the photos are beautiful.

    wv: sanatio. Ray probably had to take a sanatio, a longer version of a siesta, after eating this delectable cake.
