This past weekend, C and I celebrated our first year of marriage. As our Anniversary fell on Memorial Day weekend, we took advantage of the long weekend by doing absolutely nothing! C and I both had the day off on Friday, and while our anniversary was actually on Saturday, we celebrated both days. Friday we made a nice dinner together at home and had an evening in playing games and watching movies. And Saturday we went out for dinner and a movie. I know, I know… we are so adventurous you probably can’t even stand it. But that’s just how we roll.
As traditions go, we did save our wedding cake topper. When we moved up here a couple of weeks after our wedding, our little cake–double wrapped in saran wrap, triple wrapped in foil, and set lovingly into a tupperware cake carrier–came with us. And it lovingly took up residence in our tiny freezer for the past year. I was nervous that it wouldn’t be good and we even had a Plan B if it wasn’t; which involved running to the grocery store down the street to pick up bakery-made cupcakes. So, I searched the best methods of thawing out year-old wedding cake, and I believe that, plus the fact that it was wrapped up so well, made the cake taste just fine. Not as pretty as it was a year ago, but what can you expect…
In all honesty, the icing tasted a little like it had been in the freezer for too long, but the cake and icing between the layers was moist and delicious! I’m glad that we stuck with tradition on this one.
The week we got married, was, I think, the busiest week of my life. C graduated from college on that Wednesday and we got married on Friday. Long story short, that week was full traveling, events, hard work, heavy lifting (no joke there…thanks guys), decorating, last minutes tweaking, tears, manicures, and milestones.
This year has been the best of my life and I owe that all to my dear husband. I am excited to see what will be in store for us next.
