We lived at our previous old house for two years. That entire time felt like we were living in a forest. Nearly 20 trees grew around the yard. They had seen the house decorated by their confetti during Fall, and in its loneliness during Winter. Until we moved away I did not know that they were pecan trees. I would've loved them more...had I taken the time to look at the ground and crack the outer husks. In honor of that old house, and those forgotten trees...Honey cake with coffee frosting and pecans.
