    Edit Photo Details Wishing you a happy birthday   #traditional_food #candle #share #home #family #intimacy #love #birthday #celabrations
    This is my family preparing to celebrate my sons 18th birthday. Most people would like a birthday pie. But as a baby my son was allergic to cow’s milk so for his 1st birthday I prepared a pile of soy-milk based pancakes. For every birthday since the pancakes were there. I thought this tradition would disappear over the years. But preparing the pile and the candles just became a serious but intimate family moment! As the amount of candles became larger the one pile just turned to two piles.

    I love the story behind this photo. I feel like I can hear your voice, talking about how "preparing the [pancake] pile and the candles just became a serious, but intimate family moment." What a lovely tradition you and your family have celebrated the past 18 years. Thank you for sharing.
