On Monday night we celebrated our 1 year anniversary with the traditional eating of the year old frozen cake. Looking back on this it could be one of the reasons I got so sick today but since that was Monday and today is Wednesday I don't think I can blame it on the cake. Reguardless I have been sick all morning in the worst ways and I'd really like it to stop.
But back to the cake....
It looked much prettier on the big day.
This is actually a separate small cake that the ladies who did our cake made for us just for our 1 year anniversary.
I had a huge 3 layer cake for the wedding with BIG tiers and I didn't want to save the entire top tier of the actual cake so I asked them to make a separate smaller one. I love this idea and suggest it to everyone whose getting married because they already had it pre wrapped and all we had to do was keep it frozen for a year. This would have been much easier if we didn't take a 5 day road trip across the country with the damn thing. I was a little scared at how it would hold up and on Monday I found out that it did pretty well.
Everyone told us to cut a big slice and eat from the middle. Some say it is the best cake they have ever had and some people say it is absolutely disgusting. I think the people that say it's gross are the ones that eat from the outside (which I probably would have done had friends not told us to eat from the middle) because the outside looked disgusting. I was so scared at what I was about to put into my mouth but as soon as we cut it, it smelled like it did at the wedding! The fresh butter cream and rich chocolate was just as I remembered...it was magical AND I had forgotten that we had Icing in the middle of the cake with mini chocolate chips all throughout the cake. It was time for us to take a bite.

and the verdict is....
Thumbs up! The cake was AMAZING I almost cut another slice but then I started to worry I would vomit it all up later, then I wanted to invite all of our friends up here over to taste it but Chad told me that was ridiculous and no one would want to try a year old cake... so we threw the rest away.
PS. The outside was disgusting. Don't do it.
Our official 1 year anniversary picture.
We get dressed up for these kinds of things as you can tell.
We decided we are going to get each other a card every year and write a long note on the inside...then we will keep these cards as well as a picture from that day in a book for our children to look back on one day. I can just see us looking back on this very picture one day I will say, "ohhhh look how YOUNG we once were."
Chad just laughed and all I could think about is that I'm so happy I have him to grow old with.
Love is such a wonderful and elusive thing...never settle for it.
Love doesn't require you to settle but it usually does require you to wait.
